Visual Journal is a new series in which I document slow moments of joy, beauty, inspiration, and wisdom I come across in my everyday life in a dominantly visual format. My hope for the series is for it to serve as a visual way to share what is happening with me as well as serve as a reminder that nothing is ordinary and that the beauty of life reveals itself despite the chaos if we slow down.
October brought with it the sun and clear skies.
^ Wisdom that has informed the month
Grateful for the chance to slow down and rest around my Mother's passing anniversary (13th.) I spent it doing the things we enjoyed doing together or just stuff she encouraged me to do (making and consuming art, appreciating and nurturing beauty, and a lil' need for speed (my Mother was one of the first few OG women to ride a motorbike in our hometown!)
It's been a focused and restful few days since. The evening ritual of listening to music has sustained through these days. And there's also been a lot of reading!
As the month end has drawn closer, I am trying to filter out the chaos (both around me and in the world at large) and stay focused and creative. During this time, I have greatly appreciated the pockets of time to slow down and be (especially around Dussehra)
How has October gone for you? What is giving you joy? What has been challenging? Any wisdom you stumbled upon that has been helpful? Write to let me know, I always love hearing from you!
