Art & Coffee

3 things that always brighten me up, when i have a little down phase during the day:

Bright colors - especially playing with them - like music
Fresh coffee - not much of it, but an espresso can really work magic sometimes ... and it smells so good, too!
Deep breathing - i like to stretch  with my arms up, deeply filling my lungs - yes! Every 20 minutes is good, especially during computer work.

Have a bright and lovely start to your week flowers - and  - let's dance!



    I just got home from being out on a bright and beautiful day, and here you ARE! I agree; bright colors, the things you love (coffee or tea, ice cream!!!) and breathing and taking one thing at a time are always great ways to keep that TWINKLE in your step.

    WISHING YOU a great start to a new week as well my dear friend. Anita
