Dreams and meditations

     Surround yourself with positive people and situations and avoid negativity-Doreen Virtue.            When I'm exhausted at the beginning of a work day I do a little meditation of yellow globes of light filling me with energy.  Surprisingly it works every time and I wanted to get it on paper. Even when I don't want to draw something serious making circles is always relaxing and counts towards making art every day..                       I planned to draw a horse or unicorn but a giraffe kept popping in my head so I put that on the page along with some random shapes.  The token says Northrop Aero Institute and it was taking up space in a drawer so I plopped it on.  The string was used to tie a feather on an adjoin page so the coin may or may not be staying.  I cut the orange and brown dots out of a tag that was a recycled piece of screen printed poster.  The fish was from an old meditation that told me to lighten up. Proof that everything in meditation doesn't have to be serious.  I want to make a visual dream journal but I need to get back in the habit of writing my dreams down and at the moment I'm focused on sleeping..
Happy Weekend.

Journal pages

I've had a devil of a time posting the past week but I've been taking my journal to work. I started a new job a couple of weeks ago and I'm adjusting to the schedule. Still looking for the perfect shoes so I can manage the 5 miles plus I get in at work. I have an hour for lunch and it's a great time to journal.
