last flutter ...

During my usual lunchtime stroll I was suprised to see a butterfly fluttering about - not what you'd expect on the 1st of November - even if it is a lovely sunny day.

I did a little bit of sketching while I was out (seagulls), nothing to write home about or to bother posting, but it's a little more than I've done for a while ...

I doodle all the time, working through ideas and thoughts, but this was observational sketching and it felt good! It suprised me how much better I felt in myself afterwards - calmer somehow - if that makes sense. I guess I should sketch more often ....

It makes total sense. If you are able to get in 'the zone' (or your right brain, or however you want to describe it) - you ARE calmer, more peaceful and present. I always talk to my students about "enlightenment through art". :-)
