Connect: mandala

Connect is the theme for October over at Creative Everyday which seems utterly perfect with how I’ve been feeling lately.

It’s been something I’ve been thinking a lot about. Here is my great wish list of connectedness:

* connect with self: art, tea, yoga, reading, online e-courses
* connect with my family through meaningful family time–really listening, looking feeling.
* connect with my sisters: We spend so little time with each other, especially now that we all live in different cities. Long phone conversations are precious.
* connect with nature: Spend time outside, look up, look down, look closely at everything. Breath in the fresh air.
* connect with friends: Have fun, craft nights, talk, be there for them
* connect with my home: Feel good about my nest, especially when the weather keeps us indoors.
* connect with Tucson:  I’m always thinking about moving, but I’ll be here for quite a bit longer. Might as well dig in my heels and enjoy this place I live in. Maybe I’ll want to stay for good.
* connect with my creativity:  Realize my dreams are valid–make them a reality.

What are you feeling connected (or reconnecting)with?

    beautiful post! love that you said really listening, it’s something I attempt to do, it can be challenging sometimes though.

  3. hi, i have been following your blog for a few weeks now but i have never commented. i just wanted to say that this mandala is beautiful and i loved reading about what you working on connecting with. i find your blog very inspiring (though i am not an “artist”) and i am trying my best to be creative everyday. i will have to think more on healthy connections…

    thank you for blogging.

  4. Oh what a great list Regina! Such a good reminder…

    Hi Regina, Love hearing your thoughts. I am willing to assist you in connecting with your creativity. Here’s how. I knit & Spin and often after a project is finished I have a few yards of yarn left over. Now I know you are thinking wool yarn but it varys and many are like the yarns you buy on ebay for your tags. If you would like I would be happy to gift them to you to use in your crafting. Just because you are a giving and caring friend I want to give back. What say you?

    I always enjoy your art and craft and also look to creative everyday for inspiration and just a little focus for arty expression when life as a mum,wife,worker and ‘plate spinner'(!!!)becomes too frantic.Thankyou for sharing what you do- I think you are very brave.x.

    Oh my goodness, I adore your connect mandala and explorations of your connections!

  10. I love and adore you my dear. Always have and always will. Mandalas make me smile and yours is so what I needed tonight. It’s day 10 or someone in this house being sick. It’s my turn right now. I’m sitting here visiting my favorite blogs and feeling inspired.
    You rock!
