Spiralling affirmations for the new year

Back in the fall of 2020, my curiosity for the Golden Ratio re-emerged. It was a welcome distraction for keeping creative and sane entering the tenth month of the COVID-19 pandemic.

I pulled out leftover graph paper from my kids’ old school supplies and followed the pattern from a Wikipedia link. It provided a satisfying creative outlet with a blend of mathematics and art.

On Halloween, I saw potential for incorporating into a drawing of a cat.

It could use more work.

Then came the New Year, transitioning from 2020 into 2021. It started out with a quiet and hopeful celebration at home, writing my goals, doodling and watching New Year’s events on television.

A dark mood lingered.

Let us pray for the courage, strength and patience to continue with our daily routines, struggles and joys as we wait for release from this bad dream

Then we focused on positive thoughts and affirmations.

The next day was full of creativity and bliss while mellowing out and listening to a CD titled Sanctuary – Beneath the Greenwood – Dusk til Dawn.

The Resident Millennial liked the creation and even took time to read the script. I was impressed since many of us older adults have concerns that young people some day may not understand cursive writing.

On the evening of the first remote work day after returning from the holidays, I created another work infused with positive affirmations.

Thank you for stopping by and not waking the kitteh.

What are you doing to pass the time in lock-down and maintain good mental health?

Stay well. Stay safe. Be patient and kind.
