Finding Peace and Balance in Minimalist, Bullet List and Quotes!


Hey Peace Seekers!

I hope the day is off to a great start. I just practiced yoga! Feeling great! Wrote some free verse in my journal and now here I am jonesing like crazy for some coffee lol.

My purge continued yesterday. I gathered together my sewing/quilting stash and tried to organize it. I don’t think I did a great job so today will be part two but it shouldn’t take long. Yesterday took two hours!

Today I want to:

  • draw four cats
  • make machine draw a fairy house
  • work on my mushroom painting that is in progress
  • pick out free verses to go in the new issue of The Zen Pen Peace Project
  • work on Christmas ornament drawings
  • watercolor a fairy house

For Home:

  • Purge something in the studio
  • do the laundry
  • make bread
  • rise dough for Sky’s lunch
  • clean the tub
  • purge a little bit in Rainy’s old room

So in honor of all the purging today’s free verse is running on the theme of minimalism 😀

I’m learning to make things nice for myself. Slowly building myself a home with things I like. Colors that calm me down, a plan to follow when things get dark, a few people I try to treat right. I don’t sometimes, but it’s my intent to do so. I’m learning.I’m learning to make things nice for myself. I’m learning to save myself.
I’m trying, as I always will.”
