snowfitti

sometimes the white snow is just too tempting to pass up. like a giant white canvas.

mental space
Posted on 10.18.07 by marta @ 6:34 pm

In an attempt at claiming back my mental space I set myself the task of clearing my mind. I dim the lights, close my eyes and removed all thought of Bijou. Each time she springs to mind I open my eyes and try again.

inner strength: partial attention
Posted on 02.27.07 by marta @ 4:28 pm

i learned this from a friend. in order to move past pain (say labor pain) you can spread your consciousness around the room, and silently note sounds, smells, colors that you see peripherally. i did that while holding the ice cubes in my hand. it works amazingly well. i did this for 3 min.

pink, foot step, click, yellow, wall, unplugged screen, yellow, neon, edge, sharp, onions, sizzle, lunch, food, black, etched, mirror, white, acrylic, rods, dust, keys, heater, warm air, buzz, hum. voice, neighbor, pen on paper, hard dive spinning, inhalation, camo pattern, door opening, voice…

attention

inner strength: surrender
Posted on 02.26.07 by marta @ 7:01 pm

surrender

strong will comes to mind when i think of inner strength, but recently i’ve been experimenting with the idea of surrender. i’ve been practicing with ice cubes. i hold ice cubes in my hand for 3 min, and allow myself to move into a state of surrendering into the pain.

inner strength

the simplest and most accessible form of inner strength comes from my breath. simple and powerful. sustaining me in times of need.

Laborland Bundle
Posted on 02.12.07 by marta @ 11:42 am

This week I am making things that relate to finding inner strength during labor. This bundle contains objects representing myself, my family, my baby, and my partner. I assembled them in a cloth to that i will take with me as support during labor. They will help me to find different aspects of my inner strength.
