Another little reminder....




I had this little ring box for a while and knew I wanted to do something with it. It is worn and soft and has a lovely patina from years of being handled. My yoga teacher tells us to 'let go' at the physical and psychological level. We hold on to so much that isn't helpful to us. It's hard for me to remember to do this outside of my yoga class though, so this is my little reminder.....

Very precious - I love it. Is it for sale? If yes, please let me know.

I save little boxes, too, and place little treasures inside - I used to call them "Look Insides." I like this idea of placing thoughts and words inside.

Thank you for sharing so many treasures of your heart and hands. I am inspired and calmed when I visit you. Did you know you are very calming, very grounding, and relaxing. That's a great gift.
Blessings in your day

I have just found this little beauty on pinterest and wanted to find out more about it. I cannot describe the thoughts it invokes but everyone should see this and own one for when we need an extra something in our lives. Thank you.
Your work is exquisite.

I came from The Green Chair Press Blog, where a link to yours was posted.
Your box and the work you have done is beautiful, very beautiful, it is certainly something one would like to treasure. But isn't the message within the box a contradiction to the desire to keep it? Both your posts and the comments left me thinking of the way we humans fight our own nature.
