Pasture of horses
Bright sun, crisp shade, November
We enter their herd.
Art Prescription: Meditation with a herd today at Folly Farm.
Being with horses increases oxytocin, a good brain chemical.
Ready to deck halls
Go into full holidaze
Smell of a fresh pine.
Art Prescription: Maybe the fullness of the year, maybe looking for spirit, maybe just like the lights…
We might put our tree up early.
Holiday Stitch Kit available in my Etsy shop:
As the news gets more concerning, I’d like to remind you of the daily joys in life.
Start a gratitude journal.
The holidays will be different. Honor what you have that is good!
For my friends who celebrate Hanukkah:
I’m experimenting with eco dyeing.
Here I’ve used some spices for the first layer:
Nice yellows. Now I’m adding leaves, hoping to get imprints.
Suddenly it looks winter
All the leaves are gone.
Art Prescription: Last weekend was peak fall here in N.C. This weekend the trees are stripped and looking more like winter.
Mixed media in my art journal:
Final fling, asters
Bloom while leaves let go of tree
Both feel their duty.
Art Prescription: Nature sets such clear examples of living in the moment.
Hi from Diva!
I’m doing really good. I have a routine and it includes running around the fields across from my house.
