Solstice Sketching

| 1 Comment
This morning was sunny for the first time in what feels like a month. And today is the solstice. What a precious gift of a day.

I celebrated by going to the park to hoop (and skip rope and juggle). I intended to be gentle to my recovering shoulder, but I'm not sure how one hoops gently. I splashed out with the first spin and hooped with great abandon and joy. It felt wonderful to be dancing and moving. After two hours, my shoulder was throbbing and I couldn't ignore it any longer. I came home and nursed it with some ice and medicine.

I sat on the sofa and drew this sketch of the living room while my anti-inflammatory drugs took effect. Now my shoulder doesn't hurt so much and I am trying very hard to resist the temptation to go out to play again in this longest of sunny days. I know I need to give myself time to heal, but I feel like a thwarted toddler. Want more outside now!

Happy midsummer.

Love the sketch! I have a plant just like yours. It also has long sun-seeking branches!
