I just put the finishing touches on a new mindfulness illustration. And I’m happy to announce that you can purchase high-quality prints of this illustration in three different sizes in my shop at Etsy. I love the illustration so much that I also created fun products for it in my shop at Society6!

I’ve titled my mindfulness illustration ‘Unplugged’…

Humorous mindfulness Illustration by Joana Miranda

And I think you can see why! Ironically, these days we often need to unplug before we can “tune in.” I, for one, am so grateful for the time I spend at my drafting table drawing, painting and dreaming up new humorous illustrations. Drawing is my way of being in the moment and thinking aloud on paper.

If wall space is at a premium (it certainly is in OUR apartment), then perhaps a tote or travel mug would be just the thing…

In the meantime, here’s a little food for thought:

The older you get, the more ‘mindfulness’ becomes about trying to remember why you came upstairs.

      Thanks, Jennifer! How are you doing? I bet you are busy back at work (I can’t remember if Indianapolis Symphony has a full summer season.) Did you get some nice down time to yourself in Michigan? I’m back at the ballet for some rehearsals and shows this week, but am glad that I’ve been having a good balance this fall between my musical and illustration freelancing. I hope you come to NY one of these days. I’d love to see you again!

        We just started up again last week after our 7-week hiatus, and things aren’t too crazy yet, thank goodness! We’ve been overscheduled the last few years, so it’s nice to just do one or two programs/week. I’ve been commuting sometimes by bike and bus–a new rapid transit bus that is fairly quick and is way cheaper than parking.
        I will definitely visit you if I’m ever back in NYC–not sure when that’ll be, though. So glad I can keep up with you here.

          Hi Jennifer, When my husband and I talk of retiring I keep insisting that it be to a place where we can either walk or bike into town. I have gotten very used to living without a car and would rather not go back to lots of driving. How long is your bike commute? Can you bike with your violin on your back or do you have an instrument that you leave at the hall?

          The weather has been sublime (good walking weather) in NY these past few days. I still remember our long winter walks to the Schneider rehearsals like it was yesterday!:-)

          Lots of love,
