100 Happy Days: Days 39-41

Zentangle - Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are

Happy Day 39: I have had a lot going on in life that has distracted me from my usual self care practices. One of the things that has suffered is that I have not been having as much quiet creative time drawing. Today I put my foot down and carved out a substantial chunk of time to draw. I was aware of being tight and tense when I started. Before long, I felt the tension crumbling. I felt more calm and expansive. There was a much greater chance that wildflowers would grow around me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zentangle mandala - The wound is where the light gets in

Happy Day 40: This is another image that happily showed up during a session with a client. We were working on her back and I was attracted to her sacrum. There was a lot of tension, but heat was releasing. I mentioned it felt old and that root chakra is often focused on relationships. She immediately replied, “I know exactly what that is then.” At that same moment, the words that dropped in for me were, “the wound is where the light gets in.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zentangle mandala - rain, rain go away, come again some other day

Happy Day 41: The week has been filled with lots of severe weather – heavy rain, severe thunderstorms, hail, tornadoes. I think everyone has had enough. Today I caught myself absent-mindedly singing the song from my childhood on my beloved Peter, Paul and Mommy album, “rain, rain, go away, come again some other day.”
