a cool beautiful Sunday...sometimes I enjoy sitting still
The weather has broken and the cool breezes continue to wrap around my entire body when I walk out onto the quiet deck. The birds seem to be enjoying the calm in the day as much as the deer walking across our back hill toward the river. Snapdragons are blooming... they must not taste sweet to the deer palate so i have been enjoying them as the brilliant pink vessels capture the morning's dew. All is good in my world and I am grateful for my new day even if it only a wonderful day for resting my body and soul.
I should be working on my collage for the auction but my body seems to seek solitude and very little movement. It might be because the medications have run their course and I need the methotrexate injections to boost my immune systems after the very busy week meeting the needs of the family 's end of the school year. I picked up a book by Diana Trout ....Journal Spilling ....and found myself mesmerized by the outline of this book full of mini lessons ....learning to Trust. Diana helps with a lean into trust lesson and followed by a taming of our inner critic. She has outlined supplies needed, secrets and wishes for play and her personal landscape into her workspace. Maybe the most exhilarating were Lifeline elements and field trips to explore portable exercises in transfer, water transfers and a traveling kit to put together to make numerous marks and written text in your collages and journals. At the back of this portable inspirational book is a list of words for "spilling" ideas onto the smooth accepting pages of our journals as evidence of our never ending journey. Diana urges one to go ahead and make a mess...but do not tell Ken :O) I suppose I should go back to work now...I hope you have all had a great weekend.
