Welcome to my new Healing Nest WordPress blog! I’ve moved all of my previous posts over to WordPress land, so you won’t be missing anything in the archives, and I’m hoping that this new format will be accessible and a lovely place for you to visit. Feel free to subscribe to this blog on the right-hand side and/or change your bookmarks/settings to reflect this blog move.
Since WordPress is a new adventure for me, this site is still a work-in-progress, so you may notice a few changes here and there when you visit. Colors may change, links may be added, etc. Also, if you’d like to be added to my sidebar links, just email me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org!
And in honor of this new space, I bring you a piece I created this morning when I was feeling a little shaky. It’s so true that art calms the body and mind and it certainly did for me today. A psychologist friend of mine told me that you can’t be anxious and in the creative mode at the same time. You must use the front part of your brain when creating, so you leave your hind brain (the place where the fight-or-flight response lives) in the dust. Here’s to creating beauty while calming my inner cave woman.
