Using Adobe Illustrator, vector art generating software, I've begun experimenting with creating very simple digital drawings. This calendar features a series of 12 drawings combined with self reflection practices designed with transformational life coach and great friend, Kim Jordan (www.emergeinnerlifecoaching.com). This is our second calendar collaboration. We wanted to pare down design and text into the simplest forms possible so that each month was very easy to understand. Self reflection is about looking inside of oneself to understand who we are. It takes giving yourself time to just quiet down and check inside for answers about how we are feeling, what we are wanting, and what we are doing. I began a personal growth quest in the 1990's because I realized that if I wanted to have more peace and love in the world, I needed to first find peace and love within myself. Self reflection takes a lot of humility, and it is an ongoing work in progress. It's learning to be very honest about how you are feeling in any given moment. I wanted to create a easy to use tool based on personal growth practices that have been most beneficial to me over the years, by collaborating with Kim Jordan who has been on the same journey of developing inner peace, as a way to create external peace. The exercises in the calendar are open to interpretation and are not meant to force any ideology, they are simple tools anyone can use of their own free will. They work like road signs that point to different directions of your choosing. What Kim and I wish is for our project to help manifest more peace in people's internal as well as external lives. This perpetual calendar allows you start the year off at any month, and end exactly one year later.
