Healing Art Challenge: Delight

Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself.
Give yourself peace of mind.
You deserve to be happy.
You deserve delight.
~Hannah Arendt

Oh, man have I been in a winter slump!  Have you?  Exhausted after the holidays, it's so easy for the blahs to set in.  This week I was given the wonderful advice to take the tasks that are most challenging me and do whatever I can to make them fun.. turn on fun music, laugh, dance, whatever I need to do!  So that's, what this challenge is all about.. finding joy!  So get out your paints, crayons, your pencils, your musical instruments.. whatever the tools are for your medium for creation and interpret delight for us!  Please email your pictures, poems, photos, or performances to by Thursday, February 4 at 12 pm CST time.  The gallery will be posted on this site later that day.  If you publish a blog, please give me the link so it can be shared along with your work!

And for a little extra inspiration... please visit this post on Why Adults Need Play, by my very wise older sister and lifetime playmate, Jodi Crane, play therapist.


  1. Wonderful idea ~ hope to get some art to you by the 4th Feb ~ love your art work ~ and I love to play at art ~ hugs and namaste, cz:)

  2. Lovely Idea!..I really love the colours.

    my Art could do with a boost of happy healing at the moment!..I seem to be lost in too many ideas and not enough brush

  3. Well, I missed the deadline by a week for this ~ maybe next time ~ happy creating ~ hugs and namaste, cz:)

  4. Very nice work of art! I missed this :(


Your thoughts are a blessing to me!
