As I wait to hold my newest poetry book in my sweaty hands, let's talk about colouring. Have you discovered the satisfaction and meditation connected with colouring? I started in earnest almost 2 years ago when a family member went through an unnerving (& stressful) mental health crisis. Now these happen from time to time, depending on changes in life circumstances. They are however hard on the body. Since the body carries stress (sometimes) unbeknownst to us, de-stressing is crucial.
Enter, colouring. I loved it as a child. Pencil crayons. The smell of glue. A catalogue to cut and paste. But there are some exquisite colouring books out there. Hence when it came to prepping Devotions (the new poetry book) why wouldn't I make it a colouring book too? Oh, and let's have stickers just for fun!
Here's the trademark sticker (coloured thanks to Sue Reynolds) just to whet your appetite and inspire you (during this gloomy November weather) to contemplate some devotions of your own...Happy Friday!
