Elizabeth tells Rachael about the deeper meaning behind the margins in her monthly word art. We needed a margin episode before we jumped right back into our interview episodes, so we used this episode to create some margins of our own.
In this week's mini-episode, Elizabeth shares more about her monthly ritual of using markers and paper to reflect on her plans, hopes, priorities and touchstones for the month ahead. Here are several examples of the pieces she's created, including the very first one that set this practice in motion . . . and just might be responsible for the inception of Everyday Thin Places!
Happy Last Week of 2020! Next week is 2021 (?!?!?!?!?!) and we’re celebrating by looking back on 2020 and looking forward to 2021!
