Last week of July
Well friends it is the last week of July. The second cutting of hay is done and ready for the coming winter.
I have been reading a collection of inspiring books from the library. The hot days of summer are a wonderful time to explore creative endeavors.
It has been my go to when I needed to journal and sketch this past year.
Nothing spectacular within the pages but it holds thoughts on grieving and being grateful...memories and reflections. When we lose someone close to us there is a process in letting go and moving towards healing. Everyone has to find their way through so they come out on the other side. For me writing and sketching goes hand in hand. It is a safe place to pour out one's heart. I have been inspired by so many gorgeous nature journals, urban sketches, and just day to day items. This sketchbook is mostly private though.
If some of you are working through issues of the heart this may be a practice to put into place...a place where performance doesn't matter and not everything has to be shared.
P.S. this blackberry shortcake is calling my name. Have a lovely week dear ones. Stop by and let me know what your last week of July is calling you to do.
