Had a very quick play this morning (before the kids starting fighting and the calm deteriorated 😳) I wanted to try the new inks and board that I bought when I was away. (The board is ampersand smooth panel.) Right we’re off to get ice creams and burn off some energy at the park! Will share my favourite #phoebesflowchallenge tomorrow!
Art has truly given me something special. The ability to be immersed in the present with a still and calm mind. As someone who is always thinking about something, anything - this is huge. It is difficult to quiet your own mind, difficult to quiet intrusive thoughts. I am grateful to have found things in my life that I can turn to to ground myself. I think it is easy to take things like this for granted. But the ability to have a peace of mind, even if it is temporary, is the core of what I hope and aspire for.
