Art of listening

The power to truly listen to that which wants to come through you can be a tough thing to accomplish. Life happens, distractions occur but finding a quiet spot to sit and let your mind wander works wonders…. When words find you in that space where your mind fades, magic happens. Sometimes we just need to get out of our own way.

Writing my morning pages brought forth this intuitive sketch..

Wild weather exhales inspiration

During our morning routine before school, my daughter asked me to write a poem. My first thought, I don’t have anything to write about. Then other thoughts followed..

I hear…… Unknown to me

the sound echos through the empty house

bang, clank shakes me awake

a ghostly presence of make believe

rooms filled with chatter

I try to muffle the noise

quiet restored

my mind is free

to dance around my thoughts

(mixed media art, pencil, marker and cut paper)

Find your light

Doodling my way through life

“That pesky ghost was playing with my emotions all night.

I will just smile and wish it away.”

Doodling is habit forming. When the pen hits the paper, my eyes glaze over, the mind is in a trance,  guided by the ink, wherever it takes me. Words, images start to appear sometimes on repeat and when its over I have something unique.

When we know

We change.

When we are woven in life’s moments.. Caught.. We get tangled, we wiggle

slowly we stretch… Grow.. and learn to break free
