I finally got to take some time to myself for a week in July to enjoy some long overdue Soul Rehab here in my new Colorado Home! It’s been a wild ride the past 1 1/2 years in my life! This blog will be a day by day sharing of my thoughts and photos during this very cathartic journey in my week. It was a delicious and soothing week for my soul. Maybe you might try a similar exercise, it can be very ZEN and healing! Namaste
First steps in Soul Rehab…Day 1… unpack and hang some of my favorite creations in my office! I haven’t seen them in 14 months, they’ve been in dusty old boxes, moved from Sedona, to my brother’s garage in NY, and 4 months ago to my house in Colorado! Hello old friends…the site of you soothes my soul!
Soul Rehab…Day 2…So happy to see more of my old friends hanging on my walls once again! I’ve missed you, it’s beginning to feel like I have a home again! Also… I took a lovely, delicious, peaceful, luxurious bubble bath to add to the soothing of my soul!
Soul Rehab…Day 3…My bedroom sanctuary that soothes my soul with all my favorite art. Some of my creations, and a few of my dear artist friend’s magical paintings.
Soul Rehab…Day 4…Hanging a few more old friends in my office! I so love my large canvas which I named “Serendipity”, painted back in the late ’80s! It really soothes my soul to see it while I’m working at my desk! The rose was painted by a dear artist friend in Portland, Oregon. A very special birthday gift that she painted from one of my beautiful lavender roses called Neptune.
Soul Rehab…Day 5…I spent the day getting back to work in my home office, and was soothed by seeing all my favorite art on my walls! Later, I went out for a lovely Labyrinth walk, so very healing. I took my drawing pad and pencils for a plein air attempt at drawing the mountains! The bonus was an amazing sunset over the Rocky Mountains! So grateful!
Soul Rehab…Day 6…On this Full Buck Moon I cooked one of my favorite meals, Lamb Rib Chops with Mexican Gray Squash. I think it shows in my photo that my soul is very soothed and satiated! Today was my favorite meditation in nature class at Majestic View Park, so perfectly timed for my soul rehab week!
Soul Rehab…Day 7… Beautiful sunflowers greeting me on my evening walk in the neighborhood, after a work day, and also a healing acupuncture treatment.
Soul Rehab…Day 8… As my Soul Rehab week comes to an end, I enjoyed the day doing some of my favorite things! I took a lovely Soul Healing walk at the Labyrinth, and created a plein air landscape painting inspired by the Rocky Mountains. For dinner I picked up some of my favorite Italian take-out food, from our neighborhood restaurant Massino’s, Baked Ziti & Buffalo chicken wings! Delish! Here is a collage of some of the foods I’ve cooked this week, breakfast, lunch, & dinner!
