Behind and getting behinder ... but trying to catch up. The quiet of the afternoons should be inspiring me, but I find myself getting way too cozy with my knitting. Until next time - femminismo

Today: Day 7 in the 30-day journal with Lisa Sonora. The writing prompt is "go gently."
Ask yourself where in your life do you already go gently. Hopefully there are many places and you (and I) are careful not to ask too much of ourselves or others.
Love - femminismo

January 6 - 30-day journal
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
- Leonard Cohen
The crack that lets the light come in can also allow inspiration to occur. What a concept!
Until I made the list of things I could offer imperfectly, I didn't realize how many more things I could offer (and try without much anguish). Allowing yourself to do things imperfectly sure gives you more to try - femminismo

Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it. - The Buddha
I am here to ... make life better.
I could imagine giving my whole heart and soul to ... art.
When it comes to finding my purpose, I feel ... I am getting closer. - femminismo

This 4th day of the 30-day jouraling, the quote by Kurt Vonnegut is "To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it."
In addition to the art on this page - fiddling with glitter and tape and stencils - I visualize my soul on art and look at how it glows!
I wear my creative crown and strive not to give up, be gentle with myself and ignore my inner critic who is so tough on me - femminismo

Roots are the way we all begin. Latched on to the uterine wall drinking in the nourishment. It is also what we must encourage so we can continue to grow. That's why I'm taking part in the 30-day journal project. Roots are the theme today and the writing prompts concentrate on this. I liked thinking about which of my roots needs the most care and tending - femminismo

I found this in the linen closet this morning as I searched for a dust cloth. Just the feel of the fabric, the blue bunnies and stretching it on the surface of the bed ... imagining a sleepy or fretful or squirming baby ... took me back many years in an instant.
Happy Mother's Day to anyone who has ever used motherly instincts or actions toward any human being - femminismo
