I was having trouble doing my morning pages so I took out my sketchbook and markers instead, and here’s the result.

Is it weird that gazing at this drawing makes me feel as relaxed as if I were actually standing on the shore? My guess is my mind remembers the visual aspects of the beach that I find most calming, and I translated those into my drawing. Makes sense to me.

I made a “thoughtful” playlist for my iPod yesterday and so far it has helped me make this drawing and write four pages on craft/art (I’ll edit that into a journal entry at some point). Cool.
