First trial - Photoshop CS6 and Wacom Bamboo tablet.
 Ramadhan is over. Never before have I felt so much exhaustion during Ramadhan. The last few days were the hardest. Head pain slipped back... same spot, same feeling - I often wonder whether I've really recovered. I hope to bounce back soon. Never ever take brain injuries lightly, no matter how small...

Recovery is a long process. In the process of recuperating, I tried diluted frankincense thinking that it'd kick in... unfortunately, I still need it undiluted. Tonight, I'm pairing magnesium oil with turmeric (magnesium gives me vivid dreams... what about magnesium and turmeric?). Perhaps that incident has made me sensitive to changes in routine and diet. Sometimes I think it's a blessing in disguise. I treasure self-care and the ability to tune-in to the body's needs, and that incident pushed me further in caring for myself.

Ramadhan is over... I can't believe it. I tell myself that its remnants are lingering... it feels like that.

Just yesterday I finally explored using a tablet and created a "painting". I enjoyed the process, but I think my preference is traditional, paint and canvas. It has been some time since I last used Photoshop, so it feels like I'm learning all over again. Life is good, alhamdulillah.
