As we enter 2015, it is the perfect time for new beginnings. In truth, every moment we are beginning again (and again) - but around this time of year, there is a collective acknowledgement of renewal.Read More
We all begin again, every single minute. And I am beginning to feel that there is a lot more to these beginnings than we choose to acknowledge.Read More
Again and again, Begin.
I'm a runner, but you don't have to be a runner to appreciate this.
At my first and only triathlon in 2011.
I remember when I started running (not too long ago), and how completing a 5K seemed nearly impossible. My husband and I began with a couch-to-5K program, incorporating walking with running, gradually increasing the running portions.
We elatedly completed a 5K.
I remember when, in an adrenaline-rush, we decided to go for a half marathon....which seemed equally insane and impossible. We began with running 3.1 miles, which we already knew how to do.
We joyously crossed the finish line at a half marathon.
That was a few years ago.
The final piece, created whim-by-whim, ignoring every rule I know about combining materials. Sharpie, encaustic (beeswax), oil paints, and acrylic paints on acrylic-gessoed muslin. (See in progress pictures at the Being Breath Facebook Page)
Sometimes, you just need to begin.
You can't worry about where you are headed.
You musn't fret over what else needs to be done.
