Remember that you can always learn something…In the journal, in the practice…
I have returned to my daily art journal practice and I feel mood elevated. With all good intentions I journal and then I lapse. Noticing that the mojo wanes I return to the journal and begin again. One day, one page, and the sense of peace (piece) resumes and the mojo increases. How simple is that. Right? But oh how easy to forget….
Walking more too. Today I walked 4 miles over three walks, which is where I want to be, taking various canine friends on each one. Moving the body, moving their bodies and noses to the ground. Noticing what’s around. I am learning that I can get back to a healthier state just by being more conscious of walking. Feeling the sun on my face and the cold wind on my skin.
Reading more too. Just finished Jo Nesbo’s Police”. Not for the faint of heart, but a page turner right until the end. If you find him, begin at the beginning – his character Harry Hole develops all the way through. The new Martin Cruz Smith is in the house, “Tatiana”, a new Arkady Renko novel. Again a recurring character, begin at the beginning. Caught up also in in “Grain Brain”, a page turner of science and I think a real lifestyle changer…in some ways, hard ways, and just as much of a page turner as the above…..most fascinating.
