I've been enjoying a lot of painting and drawing this last week or two...its taking a bit longer than usual..flexing those rusty painting muscles...but the process feels like a nice change from sewing.
Poor Jeanie my wee machinie has been worked ragged lately...holiday time!
Today I took a bit of advice given by the very lovely Marcia Wieder about following my "ease"... I realise what a fair weather self improver I am because my ears really do only perk up if its something that sounds rather nice....any mention of "abstaining", meditation and list writing usually shuts them immediately. However saying yes only to things that feel good and are fun..hmmmm...I'm there with bells on :)
And so with this "ease" in mind I took myself off for a walk to my favourite spot under a Scots Pine tree which stands at the side of an ancient Standing Stone...(very blessed to have this on my doorstep!) The sun was splitting the sky today...so beautiful and surprising for this time of year..so I basked in the sun and made a new buddy...a little green grasshopper who was very persistent in visiting and saying hello!
And now comes the fairweather mystic...did you know that they symbolise messages of glad tiding! Apparently in Native American wisdom the seer of the grasshopper will be receiving profoundly joyful news!
That'll do me thankyou very much! ...I will follow my ease and not read any more google generated answers before I get told they symbolise something far less pleasant :)
Wishing you a weekend of ease :)xx
Ps. I've linked to the delectable Em who is hosting "Favourite things on a Friday"..because really what could be better than good times and grasshoppers !!
