Great little Etsy e-zine I got from the library when I laughed at the title. It had some great nuggets of self-care in it. Appears to be the things you start realizing as you start to hit your 30’s 🙂
Physical change prompts emotional change. Get out of town.
Remember to leave for vacation only AFTER you have addressed important issues. Be accountable for the feelings of others – and your own.
Borrow a friend’s dog and go exploring together. Don’t have a friend with a dog – borrow a shelter dog.
Take yourself on a solo date: watch the sunset by yourself. Eat your favorite snacks. Breathe deeply. Don’t get up until the sky is dark. Don’t invite other people. Learn to love solitude and sitting with yourself.
I liked the solo date one myself. I have just the spot picked out on the Oregon coast too…
Yayoi Kusama creates unique experiences by taking a small room, covering it entirely with mirrors, then sets up small art displays in them that appear to stretch on towards infinity.
She started her work in 1965 when she produced Infinity Mirror Room—Phalli’s Field. Using mirrors, she transformed her earlier paintings and works on paper into a perceptual experience. Over the course of her career, she has produced more than twenty distinct rooms. The rooms provide an opportunity to examine the artist’s themes, such as the celebration of life and its aftermath.
Today is Holy Thursday – the start of the Holy Triduum.
The Easter Triduum lasts from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery. The liturgy that starts Thursday goes for 3 days as one continual motion. In the holy land, Christians will often walk and go to the places where Christ himself went during the next 72 hours and re-enact the events that occurred there. The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil.
Tonight we celebrate the first mass which feeds us and the washing of feet that instituted our Christian ministry to serve the least of all.
Let us not betray our calling to be the salt of the earth – even if it costs us our lives. In the west, this might not mean our physical lives – but the comfortable trappings we use to isolate ourselves from those in need.
Then we too will celebrate the resurrection with joy – a brother of Christ who gave up everything for love of us.
Putting the baby in a car and going for a drive has long been known to put even the most restless child to sleep. So, Ford made a crib that you connect to a smartphone app and can then record/playback journeys you take. It reproduces sounds, passing lights, and the very motion of the journey. So now, your child can take your commute home each day with you.
