Happy Winter Solstice everyone!
I made a bunch of cyanotype Christmas cards today to celebrate the shortest day! Harnessing the power of that precious few hours of sunlight. I took pages of one of my medieval novels, Knowing Yourself, and folded them in half. Then I painted them with cyanotype fluid and let that try. Ten minutes in the sun with bicycle gears and plants and voila!
Julie the cat helped me with my yoga by weaving amongst my limbs. What a good kitty, to liven up my exercise :).
Do a little yoga each day. Even five minutes makes a difference in energy levels and calm focus!
Evening meditation time. A joy-filled day. Lots of art, photography, and creativity. Find ways to do what you love. #namaste
My daily yoga session always begins with turning in place, arms gently flapping. Left, right. Left, right. Calming. If you don’t do any other yoga today, just do that for a minute. Let it soothe you.
Evening meditation time. So grateful for candles. They remind me to slow down and appreciate every flicker of light. Join me even if it’s just for five or ten minutes! Every moment helps build focus. #namaste

A relaxing yoga session by the Christmas tree with candle, kitty, gentle rain, and SoundScapes on cable. Every day is a blessing. Even if you only have five minutes, make some time for serenity #namaste

Evening meditation time. I have so much to be grateful for. I’m making progress on my art, my writing, the house’s organization, and an overall sense of peace. Every day is a blessing. #namaste
Join me! Even a short meditation improves your focus for the entire day.
Lovely yoga session by the Christmas tree & Julie the Cat snoozing on the futon. So relaxing. And my new candle! I got it at the BVAA holiday party’s gift swap.
Interestingly, even the candle website doesn’t describe the scent very clearly. They say: this intense, intoxicating fragrance is aromatic and woody. That’s a bit vague :).
Evening meditation time. I had an awesome day – I met with my writing group for lunch and then my art group for dinner. Plus we had fruit cubes! I’m blessed to have such talented and inspiring friends encouraging me to try new things. #namaste
What are you grateful for today?
