SOULJOURNEY, the Yahoo group I have joined, has a new prompt each week, but I am behind in what I've accomplished. Yikes!
I got a chance to sit down the other night and go through magazines looking for words or phrases - defining words and power images - that are what I would like to include in my life in the coming year(s). It is fortunate that I am working with a very large book because I found so many words and phrases that I could not bear to part with. I ended up with two pages full of words that mean something to me.
Notice a few maps and foreign phrases in there. Could that mean travel?
We were also asked to look for one word that resonated with us. I was stuck for a long time, but now I believe the word is "possibility." Yes, that is my word. Look for it starring on its very own art journal page soon.
Tonight was yoga, and I didn't believe I would be able to go. Not because I was fearful my shoes would be taken again. No, this time I was just too sad. I thought I might spend all my time crying. I can't really talk about what's making me sad. Not right now, anyway. But lo and behold, I knew the yoga would be the best thing for me and at the end of the practice I was feeling 110 percent better. Taking care of ourselves is always the hardest thing to do, isn't it?
Thank you everyone for your comments. Four things: Tammy, I miss you too, you sweet girl! My oldest granddaughter got engaged to be married! And Candace, I am so glad you got your scarf. And, Barb, I love my bag. Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite - femminismo
p.s. I also finished the cover on my November-December journal. Odd, isn't it? Not quite finished here.
