Mondays are usually my run around days.
Today, I am slowed down by a pretty bad back ache.
It is a chronic issue but I am having a big flare up right now.
Time to turn back to old tools that work well when I dedicate myself to them.
Stretches in the am, walking and being conscious of my core, taking breaks often while at the computer, etc…
And David and I even went to buy a new bed this past weekend, as our 10 year old sagging mattress certainly isn’t helping.
Yup, picking up the tools that work again.
And also wondering why I get so lazy and start putting them down in the first place !?!?!
Speaking of tools that are good for my wellbeing,
I am trying to restart making art every day. Especially when I know that winter and my hibernation mood are on the horizon. I know that being creative and taking that focused, meditative, play time for myself every day helps keep the icky brain monsters at bay.
I want to get back to the journal page, and I will !
But for now,
these perfect white rocks from the shores of Lake Champlain,
my sepia Faber Castell artist pens, a little Derwert Inktense pencil and a blending pen
are just the right kind of art making for me…
Oh, and some too pale eucalyptus dyed bits that have been sitting outside, with rusty stuff on them, exposed to the elements and doing their own thing for about two weeks were a fun discovery this morning too.
They will be added to other arty creations someday…
I hope your week is off to a good start, Beautiful Ones !
Now get up and stretch that amazing, hard working back of yours !
