***** Inaugural Post ****** NUDGE YOUR MUSE Sharing my insights as a three month trip unfolds and highlights Mediterranean masterpieces. I have been posting daily drawings on Instagram for 21 months as jnnewing and now I expand that content into stories that build a program- "Nudge Your Muse" that will be offered later this year. To mark the beginning I want to first acknowledge my muse who has always used a strong voice inside me. On my first big solo European journey in 1983, that voice was present. This was a time before cell phones and internet support. But I also had my faithful "Let's Go" as my comfort and guide. I trusted those students that trekked before me. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let%27s_Go_(book_series) I knew very little, nor was I particularly prepared, so everything was fresh. Arriving alone in unknown places often prompted a floor-dropping-out-from-under-me feeling. These milestone moments taught me resilience and determination.
