Striving To Find Calm In The Midst Of Chaos

Striving To Find Calm Midst Of Chaos

This piece was done for Three Muse's weekly challenge. The theme this week was "reflection", we were to find a word that would have special meaning to us in 2017.

I settled on CALM as this is a challenge for me. I get caught up in world affairs, being the newsy that I am, add to that the constant strain of social media and the general stuff that happens in daily life...well it can be very difficult to find a place to just slow down, take a breath and find center. 

I'll be trying to find a place of calm both within my own head and within my surroundings.
