The week was laced with serene spaces and the feeling of just being light in my meditations. Having passed through a bit of a challenge, these came as a gift and a prelude to a new phase. Out of that, the spread above emerged.
I’m still doing art journaling at the rehab center for women and it’s been a heart opener. I believe it’s important to follow your bliss but I think meaning arrives when your bliss marries your sense of care for others. The women at the Manor House have allowed me the chance to experience that union of bliss and care. It makes my heart so happy to see them enter the journal zone and experience it’s joy. One lady there told me, “You don’t even know the monster you’ve created.” She has the mixed media fever.
I also want to thank Kathy, the big hearted mama. She’s an art journaler whose pages brim with serene & warm soulscapes. She sent a contribution for the Manor House. We’ve been working on an art journal zone for them stocked with materials. Thanks to her help, the zone is beginning to bulge with paints, stamps, stencils, gel pens, paper, oh my!!! Peek at her pages if you get the chance.
“Purpose is the place where your deep joy meets the world’s deep need.”
