Thank you, have a nice day :)

Smoothing out my soil

The sun shines softly through a wide white painted window. I look out to the quiet streets of this little town. Hot water boils in the kitchen. I slowly get up to pour myself a cup of mint tea.

Hello, kind people and future friends, my name is Kathryn. I’m a daydreamer, an amateur artist and poet, a lover of music and an absolute wildflower.

This place is what I call my garden of thoughts. Here I hope to express myself with words and experiment with writing styles. Every so often, I will plant a seed and write something, whether it be about self-growth, an update on my life, or maybe some random thoughts. Just like a flower, I am growing. I hope that my future self can look back at my garden and smile, and maybe laugh a little.

Today, I am smoothing out my soil. Starting new. I will do my best to take care of my garden and plant seeds regularly. 🌼
Rooting. I think I would describe it as having an idea, and sticking with it so it can grow.

For the past couple of months, I have organized my goals in hopes that I would complete them some time in the future. Although I have lots of small ones, I think these are the most important to me at this time in my life. So here are my main four:

Write a book of my poetry
So I started to write poetry when I was in 3rd grade. Language Arts were my favorite class and in school and I loved to write cards and messages and put my poetry in them, but It wasn’t until recently where I spend time writing it often. Hopefully, I won’t lose this determination to create it and I will someday create a book of my best works.

Learn how to develop a website with HTML and CSS
I love HTML and CSS. For me, Figuring out how to add a highlight to the background of a page, or pictures and fonts just from code is really, really cool. So in the future, I would like to be able to develop a website.

Create an artistic style
I like to paint and draw I’ve been stuck with the thought “what is my style?” I want to create something original. So I hope I will be able to create my own artistic style.

Learn a language (fluently)

I love French, It’s such a beautiful language and I would really like to be able to speak it. I also want to know what it’s like to be able to think in another language, something about that fascinates me.

So in order to let these grow, I will have to work on them and take care of them. Of course, it will take time for them to be completed but I need to stick with it. 🙂

Okay, I have to go now. I hope anyone who reads this has a good day. 🌼

My favorite quote today:

“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.” Robin Williams
My favorite works of art #1
The day started off with a cup of tea and some toast. I wrapped myself up in a blanket to escape the cold air of the morning. I think I am too used to warm weather climates. It really only is 16 degrees c in the morning…I shouldn’t be that cold. In fact, I actually really like cold weather, the feeling of crisp chilly air on my face and wearing soft socks to avoid my feet from turning purple. So anyway, while I was thinking somehow I came up with this idea:

I have decided to work on a mini project for myself. The question was “what are my favorite pieces of art.”

After watching the youtube channel “The art assignment” I realized that I had found a lot of pieces of art to be cool, but I never put very much thought into them. So I went on the search for interesting pieces of art, did a little research, drank a lot of tea, and finally, I had a lot of fun finding art that genuinely enjoyed and felt a positive energy from.

#1 “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”

So, When I found the piece of art on the youtube channel, I was immediately reminded of my elementary school project that I did in 3rd grade with tinfoil. If you do not know about this beautiful work, I’ll give you some details. First of all, the great wave painting was actually a woodblock print which means it was first drawn on a piece of thin paper (washi) and then it was glued down on a plank of wood, and then the wood would be carved into following the outlines of the drawing. After that, It is covered with ink. Finally, a paper would be pressed against it leaving the ink printed onto it with the design that was carved onto the wood.

Well, 3rd grade me most likely wasn’t paying attention to the history of this beautiful artwork, but the craftsmanship and concentration must have been demanding, and I’m really happy I found it again.

Okay, I hope whoever reads this has a good day. I will be adding more art posts later on this month.🌼
