Thinking too much – Day 88

My husband and I are getting ready to leave on our holiday tomorrow so things have been busy. I have a list of things to get done at work before I go, and another list of things to do at home, and yet another list of things I can’t forget to pack.

This morning I tried out the Buddha Board. I started ‘painting’ on it and immediately thought I should make sure I painted something really nice because I should take a picture of it to show all of you. And then I felt stressed….which I realized completely defeats the purpose of the Buddha Board! So then I made a conscious effort to not think and just enjoy the brushstrokes. There is something very calming about not worrying about what you’re doing and who’s going to see it. And then it just fades away, like it was never there!

I did end up taking a picture but it was after most of my ‘painting’ had faded away.

My plan is to paint in the morning but this will be my last blog for a week or so. I’ve got my sketchbook and pencils packed and will update you on my daily drawings when I get back!

    I like it very much. Since you did the first post mentioning Buddha board I Googled it and find in on Amazon, but waited for you to post your ‘board’ painting. Now I’ll definitely put it on my wish list. Hopefully my children will get the hint…
