Day 28: I get to-draw. I only recently learned that I could do that.
Thank you for the inspiring class Jessica!
Day 27: use your wounds-I got vaccinated today, so I have been thinking about the greater global wound of dealing collectively with an existential crisis. Day 26: cheer yourself on-not so much a cheer as an exhortation to move more lightly through the world. Day 25: change your tone-pastel colours, cursive writing and reframing word choice are all attempts to come at things differently for me. Day 24: reframe with an affirmation-l have interpreted the prompt very literally here. It’s something said when at a loss for words.
day 23: what would a best friend tell you-a best friend might tell me to take things like workshops and instructions less seriously. And I saw this great sign while I was camping.
day 22: it’s okay to-I am enjoying copying Schulz like I did when I was a kid. Day 21: give yourself permission-allowing myself to dream of travel Day 20: active listening throughout the day-when I am out and about I am a flaneur, but at home I am pure putter, and that’s fine. Day 19: give yourself permission. Falling behind in workshop again. Try to catch up tomorrow. Too many naps? Day 18: addressing unkind thoughts-this is a tricksy way of rerouting a well worn neural freeway. Day 17: a message in one word-on the day before Canada Day, a request to just listen. Day 16: name a feeling-a rare feeling in my life, but I have found a peaceful corner where I can sit and appreciate the still and quiet. Day 15: respond to your day-it’s a sweltering day and I am usually adverse to unseemly sweating.
