reaching towards

mindfulness ~
 “In this moment, there is plenty of time. In this moment, you are precisely as you should be. In this moment, there is infinite possibility.”  Victoria Moran

There exists a practice of numerous of my art friends to choose a word for the new year. While I have very mixed feelings about this, I decided I would choose a word for the year 2012. This word pretty much jumped into my lap when, after I had signed up for Misty Mawn's "open studio" workshop, I saw Misty's intro. Mindfulness - so clearly and beautifully stated. Over the years I have been attempting mindfulness and have been taught numerous methods to reach towards it. This year, perhaps more than ever, I feel the need to grasp it even closer.


The act of creating without putting a specific planned action with it, is extremely mindful for me, particularly if I allow it to happen. These papers I created for origami, once again inspired by Misty, are a recent venture in mindfulness. The actual origami process can be so very mindful in itself.





The papers were fun to create with old scrapbook pages, ink spray, ink and hand carved, or hand made stamps.
Now lets add some music and make some paper cranes.
