When familiar things, that may have been lost or forgotten, come back to my awareness and I find comfort in them, it’s like I just discovered a secret about myself. Here are three:
1. The Artist’s Way. No matter what quote, paragraph or chapter I read, I get this full of life feeling, in my gut. It’s an unstoppable, overwhelming, I’m excited to be here sort of…high?! Happens almost every time. Then usually, I feel like I have to ration the experience. Like it’s too much goodness. Silly.
2. Painting circles. I love circles and circular swirls, overlapping, never-ending, no beginning swooshes of paint.
3. Planting. Seeds grow, that’s what they do. I shouldn’t be surprised but I am, especially when you can almost see them growing. I come home, they’re magically taller and stretching toward the sun. It’s glorious!
