Summer on Mount Desert Island

Northeast Harbor, Home of Heart Craft Calligraphy!

The dog days of summer have arrived!  I'm spending more time outside, in direct contact with loved ones, and focusing on my Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training ... not much time to be online!  I'm still journaling every day, and there's lots of writing I'd like to share.  And more calligraphy bubbling up on my Creativity Stove... I expect I'll be back online more often when things settle down after the October move.  So, check back in November, or send me a note:  info@heartcraftcalligraphy.com to inspire me to post again sooner!

What's in a Name?: Heart Craft Calligraphy

By la, 03/26/2014 - 18:12

I am crafting my life.  A life of Heart-Centered Living.  A life infused with mindfulness and the Life Force of Conscious Breathing.  In this moment I'm remembering to breathe fully into my belly.  As I exhale completely, getting any stale air out of my respiratory system, I release everything I no longer need.

Beginnings

By la, 03/26/2014 - 17:59

Calligraphy can be about precision:  an exactness in the shaping of a letter, the pressure of pen on paper, knowing when to press down and when and how to swiftly, yet gracefully lighten up.  Such a balance --- just like life.  

I've been playing with letterforms and ink flowing out of nibs most of my life.  Yet, I recognize as a calligrapher I'm still a beginner.  The period of my life I'm in right now and what I'm choosing to focus on, I'm going to be staying a beginner for a while yet.
