Another Glorious Day

We’ve had so many beautiful days here recently that I’m thrilled to see this drawing come up as the next to post. Just a few thoughts today. Beyond all beliefs, the divine is experienced. (Something that occurred to me during meditation today.) And, The meaning of life is just to be alive. Alan Watts I’mContinue reading “Another Glorious Day”

Be Still and Know …

If you are a Christian, you know the rest of the Biblical quote in the title. I do too, even though (despite being raised as Catholic) I consider myself to be spiritual rather than religious. Nonetheless, it appeared in my thoughts yesterday. I was out for a walk on the most glorious day one couldContinue reading “Be Still and Know …”

Creative Journey Outcome: Success!

It’s been over 6 weeks since my 40-day Creative Journey ended. Although I’ve seen changes, I wasn’t convinced much big had happened, until this morning, when I woke up excited to start my day. This is a big deal to me, actually a huge deal, after years of low mood issues. I’m still following aContinue reading “Creative Journey Outcome: Success!”

Peaceful (and Flower-A-Day Update)

Yesterday I finished my flower-a-day for a year “challenge”*! Even though they only took about 10 or 15 minutes each, it feels like a lot of daily creative energy has been freed up for other things. Am considering making an art print or poster as a celebration/memento. Didn’t keep up with the posts about it,Continue reading “Peaceful (and Flower-A-Day Update)”

Waking Up and then Waking Up Some More

I’m back to my Creativity Journey after a couple days off due to digestive issues and a general feeling of unwell. It’s been a wake up call – to be more discerning about the food I eat, certainly. And after the first couple of days, it’s been feeling like a transitional state, too. A “caterpillarContinue reading “Waking Up and then Waking Up Some More”

Suggested Daily Routine

Suggested daily routine: Find your center. Repeat as necessary throughout the day. 🌼🌼🌼 And since I didn’t post it yet, here’s yesterday’s drawing:

Finding My Voice

I can’t remember exactly when I lost my voice, probably in my early childhood, perhaps age 5 or so. And, yes, I mean metaphorically. I have an early memory of being outdoors – at some sort of summer party – and my mother scolding me for something I said. “You shouldn’t say things like that.”Continue reading “Finding My Voice”

Finding Equanimity in Difficult Times, aka Wherein Lies Your Greatest Power?

Recently, I’ve been having trouble finding my “happy place.” This comes after several days in a pretty consistent higher mood state, which was thrilling as it’s something I’ve been seeking for years. The current news and situation, however, has been getting to me. For the purposes of this post, I think it’s best not toContinue reading “Finding Equanimity in Difficult Times, aka Wherein Lies Your Greatest Power?”

Restoring Energy

Have been resting a lot over the last couple of days and plan to continue. Seeking energy restoration, which perhaps means finding internal reserves, or “natural resources” if you will. I thought it’d be nice, though, to do a recap of my Creativity Journey drawings so far. Day 16 – so a nice number forContinue reading “Restoring Energy”
