Today we end on the last of things. We look at what’s left when there’s nothing of something left. (haha you thought it was nothing, but there’s definitely something there).
During your lockdown period have you finished anything in its entirety? Have you run out of anything yet, or what are you running low on? Chocolates? Tealights? Toilet paper perhaps? It can be anything. Anything important, anything you thought was trivial but now realise is important. Cat food, aluminium foil, skewer sticks, compost for your garden… aaaaanything – you’ll know what it is because when you ran out of it, you suddenly felt a little jolt of ‘oh no -we’re all out of xxx’. Today you’re drawing that thing… From memory if you have none left.
- Find somewhere comfortable to sit.
- Begin drawing your last of something.
- Don’t be overly critical of your drawing, just doodle, scribble, get the last of the crumbs out,
While you draw this, let’s draw insight from what’s left after you thought there was nothing.
- What does scarcity bring up for you?
- Was it really something essential?
- Perhaps how long did you have no more and realise that it wasn’t so essential after all?
At the end of today, if you feel like sharing your realisations big or small insights in the comments. I’d love to share and connect with you over these soft shapeless understandings that we all have in our souls.
