Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. ~ Thomas Merton
I had so much fun reading all of your answers to my 5 questions. Thanks for sharing. My sweet friend Shea asked me to share my answers, so here goes.
1. What did you have for breakfast today?
I love breakfast it’s my favorite meal. I wake up hungry. Today I got up and ate a cookie, I don’t do this often but it’s kind of fun sometimes. For my real breakfast, I made a mixture of granola, frozen organic raspberries, and plain Chobani yogurt. Have you had Chobani yogurt it is so yummy. I also made a delicious pot of black tea, I have a collection of tea leaves … assam, darjeeling, breakfast blends etc. I think tea is one of my favorite foods.
2. Do you have any spring time rituals?
I did not think I had any spring time rituals when I asked you the question, I was looking forward to your answers so I could create some, I want more ritual in my life. As I read your answers, I realized that I actually have one . My husbands birthday is in May, each year I create 20 cards for him. Someone told me once that Sufi’s celebrate their birthdays for 20 days, 10 days before and 10 days after. I loved the idea and have tried to adopt a version of this ritual in my life.
3. What’s your favorite new song or podcast?
I enjoyed finding and listening to each of your new songs/podcasts. Isn’t it amazing that we can so easily pull up an audio or video file so fast and for free! I’m newly obsessed with ‘Florence + The Machine – Dog Days Are Over’, it’s not a new song, just one I’m listening to lately, here’s a link if you’re interested.
4. How was your weekend?
I had a great weekend filled with hiking, photographing, and painting
5. What are you going to create this week?
I’m going to get the credit card option working on my website, it’s one of the last details that is driving me crazy. And I’m working on my circle paintings, I’m having so much fun in the studio :))) I tend to work on many art projects at the same time, I think it’s the nature of mixed media, as I wait for layers to dry, I move to another project. Here is a sneek peek, a little sliver of 3 ‘work in progress’ paintings.
These are last years cards for my husband. I’m working on his new batch for this May’s ritual, but I can’t share them yet, he tends to read my blog.
