Happy New Year and new beginnings everyone! Quite a year behind for everyone I assume. However today we have a chance to start year 2021 from a clean base! In every momonet we hold the possibility to let go of actions that consume us and thought patterns that limit us. Change our routines and patterns and direct our attention and energy towards a state of being and action that takes us forward. For myself the past year included many things that I feel that now with the year end and beginning of the new one it's good to let go of them. Focusing to direct my attention and energy into action that is essential in each moment.

Among the activities I want to bring to this fresh year is something "new" that arouse just before the new year time: I found back the joy of drawing with pencil again. I used to do it a lot when young. Recently I've been mostly painting with spray or acrylics or if I've done any sketching I've done it with ink or paint markers. Now I've started a new sketchbook and it's dedicated to pencil drawings. It's such a beautiful but in some ways an underestimated way of creating art, or at least was for me. I don't know if I'm going to create many finished pieces or mostly sketching but I feel I have a lot to learn to master this technique and I really feel like focusing the short moments I have in between the family life and the whole "making a living with art", into drawing what ever it is that I feel to draw at that moment. It's one more way of concentration and meditation for me. With that I'll continue to this new cycle and orbit around the sun! What are the routines that you feel to take to this new era?
