Waking on the first morning of our holiday, wind gusting around the house.
Morning page response to seeing birds flutter up out of the scrub, white capped coastline, and a house nestled amongst the scrub. Grateful, celebrating, savouring the gift of time to rejuvenate and create. Conscious of being part of a much wider life – birds, ocean, forest: vulnerability, spaciousness, perspective.
Soft pastels in hardbound art journal. (I’ve bought this one especially for pastels. I want it to be easy to do quick morning pages before or after work and have a visual record of my responses to life to look back in over time).
