Acts of Kindness When you're Sheltered In?

I started drawing Enso circles, a Japanese custom associated with Buddhism. Though I'm not Buddhist, this custom helps me. To draw an Enso circle you meditate for a while, take in a breath, and draw a circle in one breath and one stroke. The circle can be either full or empty–whatever it seems like to you. I paint my circle with black acrylic paint and a sumi-e brush. After I've finished the circle, I date it. You can draw several circles on one page or add color later. Each circle is different.

@harriethodgson1, Like the idea of drawing Enso circles and a new concept for me. Reminds me of those school time years when i would draw doodles all over a page as the teacher droned on and on and… Sometimes, circles, others triangles/ rectangles……The act of changing focus by drawing specific shapes was calming for me. May have to resume some of that. Can't draw artistically but had fun with the repeated shapes. Smiles
