2023 Threads of Love Calendars

CELEBRATE YOUR UNIQUENESS
The Year to Thrive, Flow Create!

Each month a new theme with Words about the Theme and Plays to Explore.

Threads of Love, everyone and everything, a weaving, a streaming, create this wondrous tapestry of mystery we call life. Each thread unique and perfect in their own way, part of the greater whole, the evolving flow.

While creating these calendars, monthly themes emerged, facets of love where each really contains all 12. Each month includes text about the theme and plays to explore during your day or whenever inspired.

Let ease, joy, play, curiosity and discovery be your guide.

In Peace, Flow, Harmony, Love & Joy,

WAYS TO USE CALENDAR
~ Do the play of the month each day or when inspired.
~ Read through all 12 months & use what inspires whenever you choose.
~ Randomly flip to other months & do that month’s play.
~ Make the Plays your own, modify, and/or create new ones. Suggestions for when to do the Plays:
~ Mornings & Evenings ~ Random moments when inspired
~ Use a timer/alarm during the day ~ During transition times: before or after activities, travel, commute, meetings, break times, meal times Suggested

Preparation:
~ Before you begin a Play, give yourself time to arrive to yourself & the place & space you’re in. Wherever you are, gather your attention, feel the support of the chair, bed, or whatever you are on, rest, settle, not trying to change/fix anything, just a gentle tending to the moment.
~ Notice, appreciate the space around you, see something of interest or that inspires, listen to the space, notice how you feel, notice the quality of your breath, natural, easy, letting go on an exhale or two.
~ Choose an intention if you like for the exploration – maybe there’s something specific related to the day. Keep the intention simple, clear, open to possibilities, an invitation.
~ And begin the play : )!

About the Images I enjoy the play & merging of textures, colors, forms, space, light & shadow. I use a layered process with unexpected & welcomed surprises as images & pieces of images of nature, people, animals, objects & urban landscapes play together.
