Today we have the first guest for the peace-along. I'm happy to introduce you to my extremely talented and wonderful friend, Lisa Orgler. When I think of people that capture the characteristics of peace, Lisa comes to mind. She's kind, compassionate, strong, confident, and grounded. It's funny that I think of her as being grounded because she is a gardener. Additionally she's an illustrator and teaches landscape design at the local university. Lisa creates the Healthy Knitter cover pages including Project Peace. Here's Lisa...
I’ve always been drawn to the landscape, whether it was the woods a block from my childhood home or our empty yard covered with a simple layer of lawn. I’m not sure why that attraction occurred (and still does). Maybe it’s the opportunity to explore and manipulate my environment or maybe the opportunity to be close to something more powerful than ourselves...or both. Either way that connection provided an opportunity for creativity and peace. Today I still feel most peaceful in our garden. It’s the place that still fosters creativity, nurturing and tranquility.
Peaceful Tip #4. To extend that peaceful feeling I also enjoy drawing and coloring gardens. I’d love to share this tranquil activity with you, so I’ve included one of my garden coloring sheets in this post. Just click on the image to download a .pdf, print and enjoy. For a bonus coloring sheet, you’re invited to visit my website to download another.
Thank you Lisa for sharing your time and talents with all of us. It's genuinely appreciated. I hope everyone is able to enjoy their day in a peaceful way. Taking a little time to unwind, drink a wee cuppa tea and knit a few rounds. I know I will as you'll never guess what happened last night? IT SNOWED!
