Trunk show piece

I awakened this morning with a bit of dread that my day might go like yesterday. It wasn't a bad day; I just couldn't seem to relax. So, I resolved to slow down, take deep breaths and actually pause to let my body relax. I needed to get my 'self' back. I questioned what was important and what I needed to get done.
I used a page in my journal where I had cleaned a brayer to journal. I cleaned up my blog some-- I will need to do more there--and I write out my artist's statement for the piece I will contribute to the SAQA Atlantic trunk show. I even got the binding Finished. It will be ready to mail tomorrow.
I do feel better. I got some important things done that I'd put off. I put away a few things that distracted me in the studio. I had a hair appointment. That felt good!  After finding that no one had broken the snow shoe trails yet, I decided to avoid them and take a walk in the sub division. Feeling more relaxed. How about you? What have you been doing?

Your piece is lovely Holly, I'm sure it will be well received. Quiet contemplation is sometimes the best medicine.
