It’s Monday, October 21, 2013.
Outside my window... it’s beautiful and sunny, though a little crisp this morning. This is the view from my art journaling position.
I am thinking...that is was a good thing that FB was kind of down this morning so I could concentrate on working in my journal rather than getting distracted by random posts there.
I am thankful...for the creative juices that seem full up right now. I just have to sit down at my work table, and let whatever comes spill out. Love that !
In the kitchen...the clean dishwasher dishes and my grocery list are calling me but the studio feels better!
I am wearing...skinny jeans, a navy tunic t-shirt, pink scarf and cerise Chucks. Chica is wearing her pink collar and checking for squirrels.
I am creating... art journal pages from ink blobs, letting the shapes tell me what they want to be. When these two figures came to be, it reminded me of this dear quote from Ram Dass.
“We’re all just walking each other home.”
How beautiful an image is that?
I am wondering… if you have seen this video ?
It made me cry. It made me remember that Art is Love and Love is Art. It made me want to go and look at a stranger in a new way. There are no strangers, really, are there ? We are all in this together…
One of my favorite things...is stitching randomly as I watch tv at night.
Letting these shapes speak to me too…
I am going...to have to go grocery shopping in a bit. The fridge is pretty bare. Then, I think a walk in this glorious Fall color will be a must. And maybe some leaf raking too.
I am looking forward to...David’s birthday coming up (October 31st, my Halloween Baby !) and also a girls party up at my sister Kristina’s house in a few weeks. It will mean a reunion with an old friend that I haven’t seen in 8 years ! Time goes so fast ! Looking forward to seeing you, Tracy !
Around the house...there seems to be a thousand things to do to get the house ready for the season that shall not be named, and not a lot of energy to do those things !
I am learning…that even baby steps count. Gotta remember that !
Let’s keep putting on foot in front of the other, Beautiful Ones!
Glad to be on the journey with you.
Happy Monday !
