I journal and do morning stream of consciousness exercises, and
I’m again participating in Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
I write to a timer, 15-20 minutes, no editing except spelling, and of course I add my art!
You can do it too!
The Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “silent/silence.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “silent/silence.”
Hmmm favorite activity…
Because I am talkative people can’t believe I love to go into silence.
It is a tradition that we try to observe silence at the New Moon.
It is a natural time to be quiet, to go within, to reset your body/mind
from a cycle of doing, rushing, activity-ing…
When I do it, I can feel the calm and the feeling of being in sync with the world.
When work just won’t allow the New Moon ritual,
I feel tired and cranky, a baby that doesn’t get that needed nap!
It is a time to be dreamy, think about where you are and
where you want to be or not think at all, just dream.
Around our house, we don’t observe complete no-talking,
but just keep the chatter down, and keep the tele off, unplug from electronics.
Slice of heaven. We are in fact entering the Dark-of-the-Moon right now,
and oh I would love to take this week end off and be silent!
But especially because of being hurt this week, we can’t… deadline time.
For those that don’t know, I have a bursa issue;
I was on serious pain killers for a few days.
Coming off them now.
For the rules, go to Linda’s blog; feel free to join the fun!
As my Patreon supporter, you will have
access to some content not on this website,
sneak previews, goodies, discounts on classes.
I teach architectural sketching,
art journaling (art+writing), creativity, watercolors.
That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
