I should be out Christmas shopping since I really haven’t started yet.

But I am not feeling very well physically today.

Tired, achy, lacking energy.

I decided to PLAY instead.

Man, it feels good to lose yourself for a few hours in the paper, paint, color, flow…

Here is my art journal page for today, December 14, 2011.





I hope you find ways to give yourself what you need today, Beautiful Ones.

Big Love !

I've "lurked" at your site long I must comment.
I wish I lived in your upstairs...I would love to be by you.
Your words, photos, music, all your art is what I cherish every day. I borrowed your rock idea and I hope you know I don't sell them...I share them...can I be Rock Fairy II...please.
My HOPE for you is that you understand what you don't feel good about and let your art heal you.
That is all.
p.s. I found you through Patti Digh...does that surprise you...not.

this message is perfect for me today, as my body feels similar to yours!!! yessss!...big love to our bodies!! xox

I think you totally did exactly what your body and your mind and your soul needed and seek inner peace. And I think you accomplished that with this journal page.

The shopping will get done as it always does. And if it doesn't? There are other days...Christmas is about sharing and being together. Little ones don't always understand that (even when they become big little ones!) so as long as I have my kids covered...the rest is icing and somehow always falls into place.

It will happen in it's time and I know you will have everything you need ready to roll before Christmas. xoxox

I truly hope you feel better soon. Sometimes I wonder if our bodies don't take on the "brunt" of the pain before we feel it. I don't know if that makes any sense- I have some nerve damage from my Spina Bifida and sometimes when I get tired and achey I wonder if my body isn't working on healing something I'm not even aware of. I think it's true- our bodies are amazing things, and they deserve time and a chance to do their thing :) *huge hugs*
