Where did we leave off?

Scribble Life

At the lap lap sound of the sea. At the miniature plein air studio, making miniature self-soothing art. Where we parted two weeks ago was in the place where art, nature and self-care meet. (see Art and Emotional Labour)

Since then,

I have supported a close elderly relative

to move to a deeper level of aged care,

into a tiny new world.

 

I easily love a tiny new world, when

that world is a rock pool,

filmy with layered life.

Filmy rock pool

I easily love a tiny new world,

when that world is a sweet language scribblingly etched in sandy rock.

the moment, in the Zone.

A tiny new world

within an aged care facility,

well,

that takes a little longer to learn to love.

Are you too intrigued by rockpools, microcosmic lands, worlds-within-worlds?

Found Natural Art Heart
someone else has been here before me,                                                            drawing a heart with pink rock on a grey rock.
Art rocks!

with love, art and soul
