Jeannine started a great art journal class last week. I am a little behind, due to the end of the school year activities, but am getting back on schedule. Digging in last week hand me thinking about these last few months, and all the changes that occurred and are coming to my life. Being able to get back to a working space has been so inspiring, flowers are blooming in my work. The lotus flower is formed from a seed growing out of a deep dark bed of mud and reaching up through the water, so my world has seemed since last fall.
I had not realized until the business closed last fall, that I had been practicing yoga for a little over three years. It caused a real emptiness, the yoga work helps both the body and the mind and just when I had the most stress-it was not available to me. The lotus is also a powerful symbol in yoga. In Hindu it is the symbol for beauty, purity and good fortune.
