Observation of the day: Although I have never abandoned my spirituality — an ever-changing and wonderful thing — I realized I miss the connection with a spiritual community. Or perhaps, this is the first time I’ve ever noticed wanting such a connection.
Today’s exercise was to “embody” our paintings… describe them to our fellow participants using movement and sound, but no words. As an exercise, it’s very powerful. It’s not something I’d ever do outside the circle of painters, however. It would scare the crap out of everyone else (ok, maybe not Claire once she finishes counselor training). I know I was a bit surprised by what my painting had to “say.”
