I am not typically excited to go on business trips as these take me away from my family. Last Wednesday’s trip was a little different though. I’ve been quite busy at work, at home and the community for the past few weeks. The trip gave me an opportunity to recharge – ME time galore! I looked forward to draw / doodle / paint / read / pray / journal. Aaaahhh…
From the moment I arrived at the airport, I was already planning my projects. I spent every free moment for some creative activity.
My first project was my travel journal. I used a notebook I bought on sale from Dimensione a few months ago. I was all set. Used my calligraphy brush for the cover.
First couple of pages were my reflections on how I felt about the trip. I wrote down my intentions for the next few days – PRODUCTIVITY and RELAXING. I wanted to be productive, not only professionally but also creatively. At the same time, even if it was a business trip, I still wanted to be able to unwind.
The travel journal is still work-in-progress. Several pages I have not taken photos of and several unfinished pages. But I did get a lot more than in my travel journal compared to earlier trips. Loved the opportunity to recharge and I must say, my trip was in accordance with my intentions. Look out for more posts from my creative retreat.
