Juggling

I have been juggling many tasks lately, as many of you do.  How do you do it? I have been trying to find ways to live calmly and sustainably amidst the clutter and commotion.  I am realizing, more than ever, the importance of not letting my mind wander too far from the task at hand. 

I took the tip of a friend, and walked to a conservatory to calm my mind and thank my skin with a little humidity.  The healing powers of chlorophyll are amazing, especially during the endless month of grays and browns--March. 

Sketching soothes my mind. I imagine the lives of my characters and wonder how my mind came up with them.
