Today I had a day off, of sorts. After breakfast I went on a train journey, all by myself, and all of thirteen minutes – to meet up with my former fellow art therapy students.
We had a full day of art and catching up with each other’s lives after last year’s graduation.
In the morning we worked with a poem by Sri Chinmoy that one of my friends brought, that I’d like to share with you.
My Art is no art
Without my mind’s simplicity.
My Art does not want
To subscribe to the view
Commands the world.
When I paint or draw,
I keep my mind’s thought-garden
Completely free of self-doubt-weeds.
My Art is the hide-and-seek
Between my soul’s illumining smiles
And my heart’s streaming tears.
