Keep the RED BOOK open

The Red Book

It is important to keep your Red Book open. Find the medium for your madness and keep it going. And of course if you happen to have a copy of the RED BOOK, then by all means keep it open for all to see. What better way to speak of the importance of dreams, of individuation, of creative imagination… and then share the results. Let us see your madness in whatever small doses you feel safe in sharing it. Where does your passion lie and where is the record of this aliveness? Let’s have a look, for indeed anything else we have to talk about is just so unimportant or stepping stones to that which really holds our attention.
