I follow The Mindful Balance blog. Today’s post Noticing the journey quotes the great Japanese poet and haiku writer Matsuo Basho.
“Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.”
Matsuo Basho’s life journey was over 300 years ago, but his beautiful little word pictures are fresh and vibrant still.
Also this morning I came across an Art Journalling project called The Documented Life Lots of ideas and inspiration for capturing our daily lives creatively.
Both these ideas felt very connected to me. Wherever we are on our life journeys, let’s celebrate the day with a moment of creativity!
Whether by writing, painting, cooking, sewing, gardening, decorating, or simply stopping to pay attention to the view – celebrate this moment on the journey.
Here’s my offering – a sampler of embellished bits and pieces.
