Drawing Ourselves Back

Have you ever felt happiness erupt in a corner of your mouth and then consume your whole face like a wave devouring the sand beneath it?

It happened to me this morning, but it didn’t stop at my neck. Instead it ducked inside my skin just below my collarbone, seeking out every dark and tight crevice in my body until I exploded into uncontrollable laughter.

What brought about such a tsunami?

I had been drawing my dog. He sat patiently as my lines captured his form and spirit. The process helped me still my mind and recapture myself. When I was done I absentmindedly placed the drawing on the low table in front of me. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw him slowly tilt his head and extended his tongue sideways.

With a gleeful smile crossing his face, his tongue slowly drew the drawing towards him.

It dropped to the floor. He did as well. Then with a deep sense of purpose and contentment he began eating the drawing. He stopped and raised one eyebrow to take in my reaction.

I exploded into laughter because in that moment I realized we both understood the importance of drawing yourself back into yourself!

The ICWIB activities are another great way to draw yourself back into yourself.

With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE.
