July 27, 2020 – Day 133 of my quarantine.
As I am unable to sit at my desk or drawing table for longer than a few minutes due to circulation issues, I have been spending most of my time on the couch with the TV. I have begun to watch uplifting, positive videos, and listen to podcasts that focus on healing and wholeness instead of news events – which, quite frankly, are just extremely negative, toxic, prevent healing, and only feed my feelings of depression and isolation.
One of the people I listen to is Carolyn Myss. This interview in particular really hit home for me.
Over 22 years ago, when I lived in that little cottage, (what I still recall as one of the happiest times of my life) I spent many hours listening to Tami Simon’s “Sounds True” audio series by a wide range of authors. Back then you got a catalog in the mail and sent-away for these talks on cassette tapes. I would listen to these talks as I drew and painted.
Rather than fight and struggle with my current reality because I refuse to accept it, or wallow in self-pity (as I recently have been) I have surrendered to it through getting very quiet and still at my very core, meditation, deep reflection, staying in the present, and journaling.
I wanted to take a few minutes to share this with you and let you know I am okay and healing. I hope to return to my desk and drawing table in one or two more weeks.
Sending you all my Love and Light. Stay Safe. Stay Smart. Stay Sane. Stay Strong out there.
Until next time …
