30 days of gratitude: Day 17

Today I am grateful for…

…having time for drawing. I began my day early, by sewing three sets of curtains. Once done I claimed the rest of the Saturday all to myself. Which I spended drawing. It was quite a while ago since I could draw for hours. Time is little over 10 pm and I had to quit because my hand was aching. I was’nt so pleased with the crooked lines that I drew (being out of routine), though still very pleased as I at last could get into my drawing and am well on my way.

…dinner cooking with mum. Perhaps we should spend Sundays (or every other Sunday) together cooking dinner after I have moved back home, it was fun and despite all it is nice spending time with mum every once in a while.

…new curtains. My new curtains look absolutely gorgeous, I can’t wait to return home and get them up, see what they look like while decorating my huge windows.

…this tranquil day, so relaxing that I even had a nap after dinner.

…learning something new. Thankfully I learn something new basically everyday. Today while drawing I was listening to a documentary about the author Paulo Coelho, and he mentioned Shibumi (which I had never heard of before). So today I learned about the very curious and interesting art of Shibumi, which is simplicity hiding complexity. It is the essence of beauty, or elegance in its minimal form.
