My coach, Cynthia Morris, is embarking on the journey of a lifetime–heading out for months (maybe longer) to explore her writing and embark on new creative pursuits. But something seems to have gone awry in the process. She can’t stop making these darn travel shrines! (They’re the only match boxes you can carry on a plane.) And she’s started a whole new blog where you can follow along on her travels: Journey JuJu.
Me and my travel shrine
I’m all for good travel mojo–especially with all of the hassles these days. So I signed on and have my own travel shrine. In fact, I’m now part of the travel shrine movement. (Did you hear about it?) Here’s a pic of my shrine at 25,000 feet on my way back to Denver on Wednesday. My seat mate didn’t mind because I had an empty seat next to me. How’s that for good journey juju?!
Get this . . . my last trip I didn’t have the shrine with me and is the time I had my camera stolen. I learned my lesson. That shrine is going on all my trips now. Whatever it takes.
Be part of the artist’s journey
The coolest thing is that Cynthia is selling these shrines for just $24.95 and offering free shipping when you buy right now. By buying them, you create extra special karma because you are supporting an artist on her creative adventure. Not only that, a portion of the proceeds go to support an entrepreneur in the developing world through Kiva. That’s got to be awesome karma you can use for all of your trips–be they to the grocery store or to a distant land.
Cynthia’s travel shrines reminded me of Karen Bubb’s story of creative financing for her trip to China, which is documented in I’d Rather Be in the Studio! on pages 215-217.
Consider supporting an artist and getting good journey juju in return.
