Awhile ago I saw a wonderful photo of a sketchbook filled with the most interesting small sketches to set intentions for the year and I loved that idea. As most people know, I like to select a word to guide my year (this year it is 'reservoir'...a reminder to fill up before overflowing) instead of making resolutions but this year I thought this was a lovely way to add to that practice. I am a visual person...you should see my packing lists when I travel as they are always filled with mini drawings of clothes, art supplies, etc. (my husband has always found it amusing)...so this fits the bill nicely. I decided that the page should really be based on my guiding word for the year so this is what I've got so far...not sure if I'll add to it or not, but I do enjoy looking at it. And it was definitely a peaceful activity...meditative. By the way, if anyone knows where I may have seen this, I'd love to get a link.
P.S. A special 'thank you' to Nanci for reminding me that I saw this on Mary Wangerin's blog The Turquoise Paintbrush.
