This week I finished up work in two journals…completion feels good. I tend to jump around from journal to journal, so not all the pages are sequential in time and space. So when they are done it feels good to stand back and see the journey they took me on. I learned from my friend Mardie that journals like to hang together for awhile…the old and the new. Saying goodbye to one and hello to the next. And so they sat on my work table this week. Hanging out.
In addition to finishing up journals, I have been deliciously enjoying and savoring a new stack of book finds that I gathered from my friends at PLAY. One of the best things about the retreat, besides uninterrupted work time, is all the new connections and resources we learn about from each other. New books to check out from the top…Wabi Sabi, It Takes A Long Time To Become Young, Love Letters To The Universe, The Mandala Book, Masters Collage, Painted Paper, Exploring Color.
The soundtrack for the weekend was my new music crush…Amos Lee. The heart and soul of a poet and a carmel voice from the south…he's THE MAN as far as I'm concerned. I LOVE, and I mean love like a junior high crush can't stop listening to the album sitting for hours with the liner notes learning every word of every song, LOVE, his newest release, Mission Bell.
Here are the two finished journals with a little Amos Lee soundtrack. Enjoy!
Dreaming of spring…
