join me each tuesday for a deep breath
In our fractured, frenetic, seemingly ever-darkening world, do you find yourself yearning for light, for calm… for uplift and inspiration?
I do, too.
That’s why I’ve created Tuesday Dawnings, my weekly deep breath of uplift.
Tuesday Dawnings is my effort to be a source of light, to offer a few moments of pause and reflection.
Tuesday Dawnings is like a retreat in an email.
Peaceful, reflective, thoughtful, refreshing, and is a great beginning to your day.
Each weekly message arrives in your InBox filled with a vibrant array of images of what has captures my eye — what I notice — in the world around me. These are accompanied by thoughtful, inspiring words of wisdom from some of the thinkers and writers I admire, as well as poetry, music, sometimes film & book recommendations, and often a peek into what’s going on in my studio and sketchbooks.
Tuesday Dawnings allows me to pause my daily routine and reflect on not only the poem, painting, photograph or other thoughtful piece of prose inside of Dawn’s weekly emails, but to allow myself the space to stop everything and find a way to allow the smaller bits and pieces around my life to enter – whether it’s a time to breathe more freely and openly, think of my family and friends and find what is meaningful to me in this world. I’m reminded of this every Tuesday, and although I don’t always read them on Tuesday, once I get to it, I feel refreshed and a renewed focus.
As a thank you for signing up, I’ve created a special gift — TaosDawn’s Daily Practices for Cultivating Calm, Clarity, Curiosity & Creativity — a colorful, downloadable and printable 2-page pdf outline of some of the practices I strive to embrace each day. Also included in it are some of my favorite books, podcasts and other recommendations.
Sign up below and I’ll look forward to sharing a deep breath of pause with you next Tuesday.
