“She made you do what?” asked the brunette?
160 bucks to play with lego?
I’m in the wrong job….”
The blonde laughed.
“I know right?
What do you think it was about?
“I’ve been thinking about it since and I have no idea what it has to do with changing my life…..”
“Tell me again” said the brunette.
“What did you have to do?”
The blonde recited the event from the day before.
“I had to take blocks out of the basket, sort them into colour and then stack them together, one colour at a time.
Once I finished she said “time is up” and told me to come back next week.”
“Yeah. That is weird” said the brunette.
“I dunno. Maybe it means as you get bigger you change colour? Huh? What do you think?”
“I don’t know…..
“As I get bigger I change colour?
That’s such a strange analogy!” giggled the blonde
“Anyway, what’s going on with you? Are you doing anything for the weekend?”
The brunette nodded.
“I have art class at Metamorphosis on Friday but that’s about it….. do you want to catch up Saturday instead?”
The blonde shook her head.
“Sorry, no can do..
I’ve got the moving guys coming Saturday and I have no idea how long it will take….if I don’t get it finished I’m going to be stuck living here forever….”
“Bummer” said the brunette. “Hey. I’ve got an idea…..why don’t you come to class with me?”
“Class…..on Friday night….why don’t you come? It ll be fun…
I dunno…”said the blonde.
What do you actually do there again? I know you’ve told me before but I’ve forgotten…”
“All kinds of things” shrugged the brunette. “Each term changes.
This one is “Change your life through the visualisation of art”…which, lines up perfectly with your new mantra of wanting to change your life I should mention…..
Go on…why don’t you come?
It will be fun…”
“I dunno…what am I going to do with the kids? I’m not going to know anybody….I’m not artsy like you….”
“Come on…you’ll love it! I promise.
It’s not like what you think….
There are heaps of different people…not just artists…there are musicians, yoga and meditation teachers, managers of big scale companies, there’s unemployed people, self employed people…..it’s a really eclectic environment.
You said you wanted a change…..and this is a perfect place to start!
It’s with a group of people you wouldn’t normally mix with….a subject you wouldn’t normally take an interest in… a location which is different to what you’re used to….you can’t get much more change than that!!
Why don’t you just give it a try…”
“What’s it called again?” asked the blonde.
“Change your life through the visualisation of art.”
The blonde laughed.
“You know what?
Sounds like a great place to start.”
