The Pairing of Music and Painting

Like fine wine paired with cheese, the pairing of a song and a painting invigorate the viewer, sooth the soul, and revive resolve to live, to create, to believe! Pianist and composer, Deborah Keily Hanson, and I have embarked on a series of music and wine pairings. The first is Golden Butterfly of Chiang Mai.…

Refrain_front_cover_wo_spinRefrain from the Identical: Insight and Inspiration for Creative Eclectics is a self-help/creativity book for people who simply cannot commit to a single form of creative expression. Author JoDee Luna proudly describes herself as a “creative eclectic,” and draws from a lifetime of artistic pursuits to offer hope, encouragement, and advice for others who, like her, thrive on myriad artistic expressions. This book is so freeing for those of us who need to be encouraged in the busyness of life to let our creativity soar!” – Donna Mast “I cried while reading your manuscript. For the first time in my life, I knew there wasn’t anything wrong with me. I may be scattered and love doing different kinds of art, but now I know that I’m ok. I’m a ‘Creative Eclectic!’” – Carrie Fisher “JoDee Luna is a strong, passionate woman who not only enjoys the arts but also wants to use them to be able to give back and build foundations for those people who have not been given the same opportunities.” – Mary Kramer  Director Production Walt Disney Television.

Refrain from the Identical: Insight and Inspiration for Creative Eclectics

by JoDee Luna

 “I marvel at your delicate prose and the soft eyes that you appreciate life with.” – Camille Cox “Why can’t you just focus on one thing?” If anyone can empathize with the frustration of this question, it is author JoDee Luna. A career educator, Luna has spent a lifetime dabbling in a wide variety of creative endeavors. Trouble is—she finds it difficult to “just choose one,” often to the chagrin of friends and family.  “For those blessed with a creative mind (and it really is a blessing, trust me), the idea of zooming in on just one thing is an anathema. We just can’t do it—nor do we want to!”  Luna shows the reader another option: Embrace your eclectic, rabbit-trail-chasing personality, and even learn the benefits that your creative mind offers. Becoming More Creative Refrain from the Identical is filled with helpful hints, journal prompts, and ideas for nurturing your creative juices.  Luna offers tips like these—
      • Remind yourself that loving so much of life is not a bad thing. While others walk right by a blossoming rose, you take close-up pictures. 
      • Creativity begets creativity. Hang around with other creative souls and your imagination will grow. 
      • Proactively deal with your disappointment over not having enough time.. Instead, take stock of wasted moments… We can harvest lost minutes for our imaginations when we resist “just one more reality show,” and the tendency to live vicariously through others’ creative adventures.
Celebrate your creative self, grow in your gifts, and learn to manage a personality that tends to shift wildly from one interest to the next. Connect with me around the web: Sign up for my newsletter for resources to help you along your creative journey:
