Tenth Year Reflections

Full Spring Studio Tenth Year Reflections

March 21, 2017 to March 21, 2019


This is how I began in a post  on March 21, 2017:

An Invitation:
If, like me, you are nurtured by the stories of co-journeyers traveling toward a life of greater meaning, or are rediscovering your playful creative dimension, or working on your relationship with the Earth, or simply curious, …then please join me in an experiment — a year of reflection to explore the story of the last 10 years of Full Spring Studio. I would love your company (and ideas) and I hope you will find something that helps you see your own story more clearly and perhaps feel a sense of companionship as I do when reading the story of others on their adventures.

March 21, 2018:
Today is the ten year anniversary of Full Spring Studio. I decided to set up this ‘table of contents’ page for the series, and give an update on its status. There have been a few posts in the reflection series in 2017, but for the most part, the work has been offline and/or stalled. A regular posting schedule was already a challenge with other commitments, but then I decided to make the reflections start in my life before Full Spring Studio and also follow the arc of a hero’s journey, as a way to draw out something integrative and whole from all the parts of my experience–maybe some insights useful to others. This proved extremely exciting, and extremely difficult, and I stalled on the project for quite a while.

As I approached the 10 year anniversary, however, I wanted to recommit to the idea, and so I am resuming the series for this one year after the ten year anniversary, –the 11th year.

This page will serve as a table of contents or launch point to the chapters of the story so they can be read in chronological order. For the moment, the first few will link to the prior website for the blog, until I decide to migrate the old blog into this website.

I welcome your comments and contributions or questions on any of the chapters, or the series as a whole.
