Hello sweet friends,
Sometimes you need to take time for healing. Sometimes you feel it coming, sometimes it's suddenly there. Or may be it was already there for a long time, but the signs were grossly ignored :)
I took up the paint brushes again. Painting to me is soothing. The mixing of colours, the layering, the way a painting evolves. Especially when I work with soothing colours, like these greens and blues I used for the painting above.
In the first layer I wrote down all the things of last year that I want to let go of. On top of that are many layers of paper collage, drawing, and paint. The blue flowers then contain things that I wish for in the coming year. Gentleness, stillness, peace, loving and caring, calm.
In the real world garden the weather has been cold.
One morning I woke up to see the garden covered in white.
Not snow, but beautiful frost.
A beautiful start of the new year.
And what will this year bring? I don't know yet. I will see where the flow brings me.
I do know though that I have to put the Simply Neutral parties on hold. They have been wonderful parties with beautiful entries by you. But for the moment I have to let go of them.
Sweet friends, I wish you a wonderful year, filled with love, gentleness and peace!
