“Through the ritual of observation, our senses detect the world around us in a multifaceted manner, allowing us to open to the natural flow of our personal creativity. Presented with layers of detail, the subconscious is free to begin its work before tossing ideas back to our conscious mind. This is the point when the ideas flow freely and our writing deepens.”  ~ Mandy Jackson-Beverly
