I really enjoyed reading this Anna. I’ve never heard of it being called type 2 fun but definitely know the experience and feeling you describe. Too long between type 2 fun drawing makes it feel impossible for me to get started! Really like the idea of soaking in the moment more in 2023.

Hi Anna! I sooo get that feeling of wanting to cram it all in, but at the same time...I’ll just do this first! I think that’s why when I first discovered mindfulness it blew my mind! It felt like time slowed down, and I was noticing the tree buds and the tiny changes in nature. I’m excited for you for this year of soaking it all in. My word for the year was EXOLORE, for a similar reason. I had the urge to just BE this year, and stop racing for a bit! Hope we get a few chances to slow down and draw together! Much love! Xx

Wonderful reflection on life Anna. I think a lot of us look for ways to live life more deeply but with with times of 'stillness.' All the illustrations are beautiful. Your drawings of the sea continue to reveal more of the ocean. The surfing one is so simple but beautifully evokes experience. Thank you.

Love the thoughts here and your drawings. Thank you again for sharing! Many of us are going through these reassessments and ponderings in the new year, and it is nice to read yours. Also, I agree that making drawings and paintings is when I feel calmed, engaged, rooted. Lovely.
