gratitude for here, now
Today I'm grateful for time alone.
One of the two main assignments of The Artist's Way is to go on a weekly "date" with yourself. It must be frivolously fun - like, not an errand or item on a to-do list, or a standard workout, etc., and even better if it's an activity that feels adventurous. Just for a couple hours a week, intentionally designated self-time to delight the inner child.
This week for my artist date I took myself to see a matinee of Alice in Wonderland ( - in 3D!!)! As much as I love the fantastic, and of course the fantastical-er the costume and makeup the better always, this was a perfect date. I stopped in at Guerilla Cafe beforehand and treated myself to a spicy hot chocolate in my to-go mug (and snuck it in to the theater!). Just right.
Riding my bike there and back with my scarf flowing behind me, I felt so light and free with only myself to attend to.
Photo: upon entering the theater, you may now don the magic goggles.
A nice little less-than-2-hour journey that had me seeing the world in a slightly different way when I emerged.
