Comfort Me, O, My Soul

After some semi-comatose recovery time from my Taos-Fail, I wheeled my art cart into Starbucks yesterday and camped out for the morning.  Surrounding my surrogate-self on the page with the warm, chuffing bulk of pachyderms coaxed my sore brain to a softer place.

I also started working with my Panda Planner, a tool my therapist highly recommends.  Along with the regular planner-type stuff, it fosters brain health with headings like What I’m Grateful For, Things I’m Looking Forward To, and a nightly review that includes Wins for the Day.

I feel like I’m starting to crawl out from under the stress of moving (or not knowing when I’ll move) and get back to things that need attention.  Slowly.  Carefully.  I don’t want to startle the elephants.

    Nothing like a posse of pachyderms to make one smile (though that angry bull was alarming…yikes!). I’m fascinated by the Panda Planner, Sandy. Think I may have to get one for myself.

    I love Starbucks and collage art and journaling for therapy. My therapist says the same about journaling. I think the aromas of the coffee and baking are therapeutic. I love your art.
