I had great fun creating a collage these past couple of days around the them of women dancing, firstly, to encourage myself to get into gear more and move as I tend to get suckered into the computer screen and typing furiously, and secondly, to celebrate 1 Billion Rising on 14th February, a worldwide movement of women getting together to dance against violence towards women.

Along with creating this collage, I’ve also been tidying up my work space, which is a quite amazing feat on my part given my congenital untidiness since I was a kid. But with Libra recently in Saturn, I’ve been inspired to get my house in order, so to speak, and a tidy study is one of the results.
I can remember talking about being tidy to a friend of mine who commented that it felt good (she is very organised and practical). I held the phone away from my ear and looked down it, thinking: “No, it doesn’t feel good, it feels downright weird”, but hey-ho, she’s right, I feel downright nifty having everything in place and knowing where I can find stuff. I’m also amazed at the number of glitter goodies I’ve accumulated – nothing like tidying up to find out how many forgotten resources you have!
So here’s the result of my study reshuffle:
