Stillness is…


»stillness is not the absence of thought.
stillness is prior to both the absence and the presence.
it cannot be created, but it can be found.«

This Week I Am…

Fisher Space Pen Bullet Fuchsia Flurry

Fisher Space Pen Bullet Fuchsia Flurry

This week I am…

golluming over my new pen, a Fisher Space Pen (it can write at any angle, even upside down = perfect for writing while lying down!);

drinking homemade carrot juice with chlorella, wheatgrass, lime and ginger;

reading and enjoying The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black;

watching the very last season of the absolutely brilliant tv-series White Collar (love Love LOVE! ) and crushing on Neal Caffrey (obvs!);

drawing polar bears;

wearing starry night sky-coloured nail polish, and rosewood mala bracelets;

feeling immensely grateful for the new sense of relief and freedom in my life, since the court ruled in my favour a couple of months back (HURRAH!!);

sewing saddle-stitched inserts out of black drawing paper (and bright cyan coloured thread!) for my Traveler’s Journal, to doodle in with gel pens.


What about you?

That Strange Happiness…

This is a page in my art journal. I’ve never shared anything from the journal before, so this is a first. Only for you, Maggie.

I hear you’re not particularly fond of stick figures… ;) Well, this was the next best thing; it’s not for lack of trying.

I’m very much a beginner at this. Everything about painting and lettering is new-to-me, and I’m learning as I go. Here I was experimenting with acrylic paint & acrylic paint pens. It doesn’t feel finished at all to me, but I ran out of time…
