I’m a little bit behind with my visual journalling (like….a LOT behind) the days have flown by! I turned forty a couple of weeks ago, and only just managed to get a page done for it 🙂

For the past week I have been knocked flat by an eye infection. It completely took me by surprise. I woke up with a sore eye one morning and by the end of the day I was in bed, in the dark with an EXTREMELY painful eye. It stayed that way for several days, and is still in the process of healing.

Once the pain subsided a little I started getting a bit of cabin fever, so I helped myself to a little art therapy. I had to have the sore eye closed and there was very little light in the room (and lots of breaks), so it took absolutely forever to get this done, but the slow progress was almost meditative, so it had my brain occupied on something other than the sore eye.

I love to draw and take notes during the talk at church. Drawing pictures that encapsulate the message helps me to recall the teaching points much better than if I just take text notes.

if I’ve had a busy morning and I need to clear my head in order to change gears for another task I’ll sit and draw for 5 or 10 minutes
