Apologies for being absent, but I've been sidelined by severe sinus pain--my first-ever experience with allergies. How lucky am I that I have never had to deal with allergies until now! Living through the past week and the havoc it has wreaked on my system gives me such sympathy for others who have allergies from childhood. A huge challenge.
In any event, "3-H weather" is here (hazy, hot, humid) and that means no studio work so I've been busy with other things. But I wanted to pass along a link to a marvelous blog that I've been reading for years now; the topics are incredibly varied and the author must spend 100% of her time reading, since she recommends the most wonderful and unusual (or forgotten-but-fascinating) books. It's also lavishly illustrated, and thought-provoking. This entry is on what drawing does for the way we see the world.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), a long-time meditator, a certified meditation teacher and coach, and focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
