Days 8 thru 11 – New Moon Mandala

Day 8 – New Moon March 22 
The circle is a perfect container for something new.

Day 9

Day 10
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.

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).
