Well hello there readers how goes the ebb and flow of life? Life continues to be in constant movement from my perch here in Victoria. As I give my head a shake happily gazing at the ocean in a new location there has been ample time to wonder,question why am I here..Well there is a new fact of my life happening its called “LEARNING” .A realized dream is creatively unfolding before my very eyes..I play the role of a student in a Art Therapy Program and whoa its kicking me into approaching my art differently and presenting new ways for me to work with others.
So one can imagine in a year what this will look like when the program ends but my learning will continue…Yahoo!!!. Its said when the student is ready the teacher will appear and so translating. my teacher is a dream unfolding and its all about ART!! gotta love it…As life goes nothing has turned out in any way that I had planned (ok stop laughing u) but when I peek around the fear of have not it really is ok .more than anything its another opportunity for me to practice humility and surrender (sigh). My lifestyle is not for the faint of heart
The past 4.5 months have found me for the first time in my life without my own space due to high rents and a long laundry list of what landlords do not want for a tenant…having pets is a no no on that list and a small budget…so another first in many moons is sharing space….My furs are thrilled with their new roomies another human to give them attention and then nickey the cockatiel. Animals have ways of showing us humans that we really make mountains out of molehills as kasper and peso just slid into the new shared digs with ease lol lol meanwhile I kicked and screamed while in progress of slowly accepting this reality for now.
I live a slow life…what is that u ask?
“The Slow Movement is a term describing a wide range of efforts taking place around the world that seek to connect us more meaningfully with others, with place, and with ourselves. It emerged as an effort to counteract the fast–paced, commodity–focused, unbalanced, and impersonal nature of much of modern human culture. The main tenant of the Slow Movement is that by taking the appropriate amount of time to experience the various activities of our lives, we are able to get in touch with what is deeply satisfying and fulfilling”.
So how I’ve lived most of my life is a label and movement…..When u know nothing else it is what is ……..Going in unintentioned directions and locations has opened a path that I believe I am now ready for…So here is to making the best of what is presently on my plate one bite at a time. Stay tuned as I slowly unfold here in Victoria for however long…Not having spent loads of time in this city it will be fun to explore and take advantage of the art/culture here. Thus far I Like It!!!!
