Today I spent some time in my garden, cleaning the weeds from one of the beds and cutting back the huge clump of lemon grass that grows in one corner. I never knew that it would grow so big. I bought a plant in a small pot and I imagined it would be about the height of chives - ha! My clump is about 90 centimetres high and spread out.
I disturbed a lot of lizards while I was fossicking around and they reminded me of this ATC. It's another one of Ellie Neil's and I love the Outback colours that she has used.
By mid afternoon, I was getting restless. There were so many ideas and half-thoughts crashing around in my mind. I have been wanting to learn to meditate for so long and today seemed the perfect opportunity to start. I had read so much about the process before but had just never put it into practice. That's how I usually work with any new subject - I soak up information for a long time, let it percolate and then try it out. Do any of you tackle new subjects in this way?
Well. I cannot tell you how much I gained from my first short meditation. I am a convert. In an uncanny way, I think Ellie must have had an inkling when she made this ATC for me.
