My box saga

26 Jan 2009

As some of you know I use boxes. This is about my newest box.

I am having art therapy. My aim is to become more self caring.

For me it is very helpful to use images combined with a therapist who observes and asks questions. But... it is very expensive, so we agreed I should start reducing my visits. I came up with the idea of a maintenance manual and out of that came my latest box.

In it I have put things that may help keep myself in balance. I try to use it regularly. I've written actions on lolly sticks and I draw one each day. I try to carry out the task. It maybe dance, so I jig round the kitchen; write, paper and pen from the box; draw, crayons there ready. So far it is helping. I go away next week and my box goes with me.

What might you put in a box to help?

You know what I don't have chocolate! Hmmm, Can I express myself in chocolate?
