Birdsong @ Sunrise – 5:51am /6.30.20

Last month I wrote about my desire and intention to resume some form of daily art journaling, a practice I abandoned, perhaps 5-6 years ago. Why ? I know not. This time around, I think I want to be messy – but, that’s not really me, my style, despite the fact that I someitmes leave my computer desk in a state of messy. If I’ve been there too long and tired overwhelms, I put the computer to sleep and walk away until the next day. I don’t do this often but it is a habit . And I must admit, since we’re on the subject, that is exactly what I did last night.

Over the past two months, I hae been creating some form of art – though I wouldn’t call it messy, on an almost daily basis. My canvasses are small, ranging in size from 3.5 x 5.5 inches to 5.25 x 8.5 inches. I  find that doing this daily is causing the juices to flow a bit.  I look forward to the daily break and miss it when I don’t make.  I’d have to say that this definitley is  a habit in the making … including my quest to try my hand at messy art journaling. 

I wonder how July will fare?

Drop by drop is the water pot filled. ~ Buddha

Over these past days, correction, months, of social distancing and staying at home, I’ve been more conscious of the minutes, hours, passage of time. I suspect we all have as shared by news and social media tales of how we are coping – or not – world wide. I know the rhythm of my days has certainly changed; I suspect there won’t be a return to what was and in many ways, that is A-OK with me…for I am liking the flow and new habits that I am creating. That’s good.

On my bucket or someday maybe – list, has been a wish: resume the practice of art journaling. Ten years ago, when I first retired, I did a lot of art journaling. I drifted away. I’m not sure why or how. Lately, I’ve found myself dabbling in messy art. Could this be the reawakening? Or just a passing fancy? Only time will tell but in the meantime, I am enjoying the reconnection.

There are other habits on my list I wish to resume, start  or stop. But before I tackle them, I shall focus on cementing my reconnection with messy art journaling, my unrequited love?
