#3 – Sadhana – a daily practice

White Space as a daily practice

In the design world we place a premium value on white space. There's space beneath a photo, around a logo, beneath headings and paragraphs, not too many elements on one page.

            Full Moon Pisces, harvest moon and lunar eclipse is emotions on overdrive. It's asking us to open our wounds so we can shift our perspective and finally let them go. The eclipse amplifies the energy. Have you been feeling its charge? There will be drama unless emotions, wounds, old stories and ourselves are fully felt and owned. And if possible dissolved.
