Day 8 – New Moon March 22
The circle is a perfect container for something new.
Grateful for the time I give myself to explore and relax before sleep. The best sleep aid I know is a little doodling before bedtime.
Day 11 – New Moon Mandala
When is your favorite time to doodle?

Colors added at night, before my evening meditations and reiki practice.

I’ve missed this world of line and color.
I stopped doodling last summer because it stopped being fun. My inner critic was having a hey day. I had too much on my plate. I was in the midst of new adventures. There were many different reasons. But recently, the longing has returned. On March 11, I unearthed my art supplies and found a sharpie that wasn’t dried out. My prismacolors came out a couple of days later.
Then I found a new blog template that was bright and inviting.
I decided to create a 28 day project, because they say it takes 28 days to instill a new habit. I have not found my way back to the sketchbook every day since last Sunday, and that is ok.
If you are out there still and have been feeling a slump in your practice, come join me. This is a low pressure, not very well organized invitation to get back to something you have been missing (or have been wanting to try). This is a great time for newness with the Spring Equinox in just a few days.
I’d love to hear your comments. What are you doing that is New for You?
(Besides a return to doodle, I have recently begun an almost daily meditation practice as well).

Deep in the forest he resides, wise and wizened.
If you knock on the door in his tree, he might come out and share a story.
What would you like to hear from him, if you had the chance to ask?

Last night there was no other option but to put marker to paper. So I did! And this morning I woke up happy. I think there might be a connection.

We do and do and do so much
That sometimes we forget
