I made a thing

Just a little thing I thought of while walking home from work last week. I don't even think it's interesting enough to be worth sharing. But if I don't share it, what's the point of having made it?

So, here's the thing that I made.

If you can't read it, it says:
Winter's bare branches
Give way to pale plum blossoms
Life, under grey skies

Here's another thing that a friend and I are making. It's more exciting, I think. Totally not done yet, though, so this is just a teaser. Eventually it will be part of, "Happy - A Rainy Day in Ehime."

I went to visit her last weekend, and it was the last time we'll hang out before we both move back to the U.S. I'm sure we'll get up to more shenanigans in the Seattle and San Francisco areas!

So, what do either of these have to do with the theme of my blog? Let me tell you!

If you may recall, this blog is all about health, encompassing physical, mental, and emotional well-being. I believe creativity plays a huge role in the mental and emotional aspects of health.

So, take for example the first picture, my February haiku. That day I was feeling lethargic, kind of down, but looking forward to the near future. These feelings come across, right?

Then, in the video I am clearly happy. This is because I was hanging out with a close friend whom I hadn't seen since Thanksgiving. But I also had a headache. Imagine how much more energetic and happy I would have been if I had been feeling physical healthy as well.

So that's all I have right now. Expect my posts to be shorter and less often this month, since I am really busy getting ready to move overseas. I apologize in advance!

  1. I can identify with your feelings of wouldn't I be enjoying something more if I were not in the physical or mental condition I am in.
