Had a quiet, regimented day feeling more aware and present than normal. I think warm tea helps me slow down and pay attention.

Attempted to cut some mat board. Planned out a complicated six photo mount and forgot how easy a mat cutter can get away from you. Scrapped my efforts and will try again tomorrow with a little more patience.

Watched a few Explained episodes on Netflix. They’re good hits that send you googling. The Beauty episode and how dementia patients responded to art was thought provoking. Got me wondering if we could better quantify the importance of art in our wellbeing.
