Guest Post: The Things That Make Life Beautiful, by Katie of The Grief Reality


Thank you to Katie of The Grief Reality for permission to repost this wonderful article of beauty and joy.

  1. A morning cup of coffee, just the way you like it.
  2. Long autumnal walks with leaves that crunch under your wellies.
  3. All of the music that your favourite bands are yet to release.
  4. The concerts you are yet to attend.
  5. Walks along the coast that are so windy the breath is taken right out of you.
  6. When you come across a little cafe that sells gluten free baked goods! 
  7. Barbecues that go on late into the night until the flames have died down to orange glowing embers.
  8. The feeling after a long laugh.
  9. Weekends away in cosy cabins.

OctPoWriMo Day 3


Today’s prompt is Beauty in Chaos. I opted to do the creative exercise.

brand new paint set
no expectations
just exploration
42 colors
some vibrant
some muddy
no plan
just joy and delight
comparing the matte color on the tray
with what it looks like on the paper
blended with water
different kinds of strokes
green leaves
swirls and dots
a crescent of red
tendrils of blue and green
orange made pastel with white
squiggles and lines
nothing thought out
just the pleasure of getting to know the paints
