Saturday Sharing (My Finds Are Yours)

Another week has come and gone but Saturday Sharing just keeps on and on. Enjoy today's roundup of sites you might have noticed yourself, had you not been so busy twittering.

✭ At the Sacred Garden in Maui, you'll find much that's spiritually nourishing. (A nod and a thank you to my friend, Sunrise Sister at MindSieve, who shared her link to this beautiful place.)

✭ If you haven't seen Julia Cameron's Website, The Artist's Way, you're missing out on some helpful artistic tools. Cameron is the author of the best-seller The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity and more than two dozen other books. She's also an award-winning poet, playwright, songwriter, and filmmaker.

✭ The site 750 Words is inspired by Cameron. Its aim is to give writers a way to make sure they write at least three pages (approximately 750 words) every morning without taking the life of a tree. It's just what undisciplined writers need. The FAQs, which explain how to become part of and use the site, are here

Freubel's Art Page is for you digitally unchallenged types. Enjoy the collages. Hungry for more? Go over to 1st Floor Flat Freebies and enjoy images of free vintage ephemera that you may download and use till you've exhausted your own creative muse.

✭ We all want love, happiness, and wisdom; so, no one will fault you if you head over to WiseBrain and make a few downloads. You might also enjoy exploring all the resources that Rich Hanson has collected to help you alleviate stress, promote well-being, and deepen your spiritual practices.

✭ The Eyewriter Project, an open source collaborative research initiative, is making it possible for artists, writers, and others experiencing the paralysis caused by ALS to make art, write, and communicate in other ways. It's a marvelous innovation involving Open Frameworks, Graffiti Research Lab, and many, many others. The video below is just a highlight of what Eyewriter is seeking to do.
