On Beauty & Fashion

More in the series on Mindfulness...
The prompt was asking us to think about Beauty...
Which got me to thinking about fashion 
& the role it's played in my life. 
The subject of beauty in human beings is complicated.
It's much easier to contemplate beauty in nature & art.
But it's a definite preoccupation. We have our own versions of 
the Greek gods & goddesses...& beauty industries. Wow!

What do you think on this subject?

The prompt was: 
How are we helpful to other people?
Big topic. I focused on one aspect:
How J and I are "inter-helpful" to one another. 
(or would it be "intra-helpful", it it were even a word?)

I sort of tidied us up here. I think we look older
than in this sketch,
but we often feel younger than we are.
Grateful here.

Good Sunday to you, thanks for stopping by...

Journaling As a Tool for Spiritual Growth

I'm participating in a group journal activity 
during May which is "Mental Health Month.
One prompt per day. 
Above, it was about loving oneself.

This was a response to a question about 
what we learned & experienced during the quarantine year.
Journaling in my paper books became more important 
than ever as a way to nurture my mind & spirit.

Thinking about what we are good at. 
Congratulating ourselves. What I like about writing prompts
is that anything that gets sparked is OK. Tangents
can become major themes. It's about discovery,
& in this case, self-discovery. At any age...

Le 1er mai. Un brin de muguet

Happy 1st Day of May!
I've missed you. 
I've been posting in my paper journal lately,
 & experimenting with some new materials, 
mostly pens & journal notebooks & covers. 
(Here: Uni-ball Signo, white ink.)
I will try to come visit you on your blogs. 
For now, I'm not able to post comments,
don't know why...
