idea #50 - make micromovements!

seeing as this is the halfway point and considering the mid-january snag, it's a great time to discuss micromovements.

epiphany #3085 {haiku}

i will make love new
again. this winter protects
new seeds. growth awaits.

idea #39 - make a collage

i've found that this is the perfect way to be artsy without having to know how to draw, paint or anything as intimidating as that. 'cause art can be quite intimidating to me.

but piecing a bunch of things together can be pretty cool. it's also a great project for kids.

try it sometime...just pick a theme and have at it!

idea #34 - find a long lost friend

with all the negativity around social networking these days (seen a court show or heard about a "facebook divorce" lately?), why not use it for something worthwhile?

find a former beloved teacher, or a friend you've lost touch with. reconnect with distant relatives. that sort of thing.

have fun!
