Five Faves

Five favourite things this month of May.

Doubt requires more courage than conviction does, and more energy; because conviction  is a resting place and doubt is infinite – it is a passionate exercise. ” By John Patrick Shanley

  • Liberated Body Podcast – Season 2 began in May. So many great people featured on this show. My reading list always grows when I listen, for instance, Natural Born Heroes by Christopher McDougall.
  • Playing with paint. I met a friend, Rita, who I hadn’t seen in a long time. We did a paint reading together. I dropped 5 drops of paint into a cup and we watched it swirl and change. We watched the paint dry together as we talked about what we saw. We laughed, and I cried, all over 5 drops of paint worth of art. Among other things we talked of freedom, horses, exhaling, gentleness and play and their opposites.

  • The 20th Annual Festival of Quilts was on at Heritage Park was last weekend. Over 600 quilts were on display. It was my first time attending. I took only a dozen or so photos and when I looked up who had made them, four of them were by the same artist, Vanecea Greene. I’m inspired to use up my small scraps of dyed fabric.IMG_2264
