Under the Miriam Tree

Every New Beginning…

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end…”

This poignant line from Semisonic’s Closing Time feels most apropos on the day I have finally shut down Mentors and Masterminds, my networking site for administrative professionals, and turn my attention to Tara Erin: Artist in a Cubicle.

The scope of Mentors and Masterminds was quite specific, and that specificity was both its beauty and its problem. The beauty of the site was in how quickly and easily I was able to design, build and deliver focused content on the subject of mentoring; the problem lay in the narrowness of the scope. I am an artist and creativity coach, and there didn’t seem to be room for all that I wanted to do within its confines; and being only one person, I couldn’t really keep Mentors and Masterminds running while turning my attention to a new endeavor with a broader scope. In keeping with my 2018 word of the year, some PRUNING was required.

And now that I stand here on the threshold of a broader conceptual space, I am both excited and overwhelmed. Where do I begin? How will I ever get to it all? What was I thinking?!

My Navigator takes over: she knows the map of this place. “We have a lot of spaces to build: the creativity blog, the teaching studio, the art gallery, the print shop, the services page and the scheduler. We’ll start with the blog. I believe it’s time to bring in the Muse, now?”

The Muse steps in, but she doesn’t say anything: instead, she starts imagining, taking me on a mental journey of the possibilities and I can see these digital spaces being filled with things I have yet to create.
