move it move it move it

yeah this morning as I was heading home from my morning walk with my dog Rufus, I put music on my headphones and noticed how my body turned on instantly----to move---in a different way. It  became lit from within to move it groove it mooooove it. A little sway at first and then shoulders rolling hips too. And a bit later at home when I began to draw in my journal I was reminded that movement is necessary it is an expression it is creation. Mark making has an energy it's own. Like the body listening to music it wants to do it's own thing...so once again learning and giving space for that to happen.

Take a moment today, put on music, and let your body do what it wants with crayon marker paint in hand or just a wave to the paper may be enough to reignite that creative swirl inside you.

melting buddha

 this sketch book page is from a brief drawing things from life practice...

my sister bought me these tiny votive buddha candles for the holidays
 and I love lighting them and watching the buddha head melt.
 it's true the deeper I focus the more I crave focus
which I feel lately is extra challenging.
need to bury my phone for a few days or months.

File Found

 I'm always finding scraps of paper with notes or drawings in a pile I forgot about. It's like Forest Gump instead of life is a box of chocolates, it's piles....life is a pile of papers....you never know what your gonna get. Found this file yesterday in a.. yes... smallish pile, with these three words on it (below). Hmmmm-not really sure what I was going for. Perhaps when I label my files next time I shall be more specific. This file sounds like giving birth...

Inside the file I found these:




and this little piece of paper....... 

                                            seems like a good way to spend a few minutes.

 enjoy the day!
