So I don't know about you, but the news has been crazy lately. And with the holiday season upon us, I've notice how much better I feel if I can ignore my phone for a bit and get my hands dirty. It seems I always smudge my "good clothes" with a nice paste of loamy soil just before I leave the house; but it's worth it.
I recently fell in love with this print of a very peaceful buddha in a local consignment shop. I will hang it in on my office wall for now, but I might waterproof it and hang outside in a hidden nook of our outdoor patio. Her smile is so peaceful, I'd like to feel like that everyday. Practice meditation, practice gratitude. (And grocery shop, cook dinner, help with homework, plan gatherings, keep on top of all the things we have besides work.) Peace out.
