One of my favorite rituals is repainting my walking stick on my birthday. I never know what to expect until it’s finished

Last year’s design was one of the most simple ones I’ve ever done. Just feathers and a rambling path of dots. It felt right, for last year. This year’s design is a little bolder and brighter. There are still a few feathers and plenty of disconnected dots. And this feels right for now.

What are some of your favorite rituals?
