Do you believe in magic? I do…some time ago I spoke aloud , a wish to meet a like minded person, someone close to my own age, someone who lived close by, an individual who could share creative endeavours with me. I was as specific as possible then forgot all about my wish…..And wallah! Through what appeared to be chance I met Susan at a grief support group. A like minded person who had also lost an adult child, she is my age, and is living in my little village. The only thing she claimed was missing was an aptitude for art. And so one day I invited her for lunch with a plan to introduce her to Art Trading cards. She took to the cards and a day later in an email she shared her plan to do a card a day for a month. Loving the idea I decided to join her and from our separate residences we have begun.
I like to call my cards “Mini Masterpieces”. They measure just 2.5″ x 3.5″ and can have as much or as little detail as possible. I was no stranger to art cards and know the process to be quite meditative. Never being one to sit still long enough to actually meditate this instantly seems to provide a therapeutic element that may have the effect of a good daily meditation practice.
