It’s Mental Health Month here in Oz.
Wednesday was Mental Health Day.
Just as well, says Sally, as I was feeling super-stressed and I had the opportunity to attend Qi Gong class while watching the rain lollop down the window pane. That helped.
Creative expression helps to alleviate stress big-time.
And small-time. That is, even if you have only a small rainy window pane to express your pain, or simply play with colour, it helps.
You might remember Aunty Art Café. It’s one of the occasions I’ve shared with you school holiday art-making experiences with my niece. Fun.
This school holiday, my niece, sister and I had one hour. Just a little bit of bloomin’ art-making time. (please excuse the My Fair Lady song reference. Do you know ‘With a Little Bit of Bloomin’ Luck’ from another era?)
One hour. What shall we do?
