collage about what you feel

So if you have been reading this a while, you will know my mantra is to:
Collage What you Feel!
This page reflects a mystery in my life I just haven't solved yet. I keep longing for Paris.
Even when I am in Paris, I long for Paris.
Is as if I have some unfinished business from a past life there and I just can't crack the nut.
I love reading books about Bohemian Life in Paris. There, the arts and the artists are revered, honored, extolled.
Their life seems so full of love for beauty - good food, good art, good films, beautiful shops.
I have spent about 8 weeks there over the last 5 years in four different trips, but I just don't seem to get this out of my system.
So I journal about it to figure it out. I journal about it to enjoy what Paris can give me. I journal about it and make collages about Paris to figure it all out, and I enjoy the process.
SO, if you really want to do this right, pour a glass of red, get some good cheese (and bread if you can eat it), put on some Edith Piaf, and maybe wear a beret.
Explore your love.
Don't ask WHY - just do it.

  1. I knew Paris was in your soul just because snippets of it have appeared in many of your collages over the years. I love you true you are in your thoughts and your work! I take care of a 20 year old kitty who came from Paris. When she passes away the owner is having her cremated and bringing her cremains back to Paris. How wonderful is that!
    I love popping in to see what you're up to. I'm trying to find some free time to do my entries and send our journals back. I love the 'no pressure' thing!
