I am getting ready for a journaling workshop I am teaching in two weeks, and picking up a travel journal from two years ago was like getting together with an old friend for coffee.
I have not opened this one in a while, and it was so cool to see things I had dreamed about and hoped for just two short years ago that now are actual realities in my life!
(having a studio, for one.)
and a very favorite quote of mine that I have not read for a while: "The secret is that words create the Universe, and we control the words."
Here are 5 random pages from this journal, it is not large (about 5" x 7") and is mostly bound calender pages, magazine pages, music paper and other miscellaneous scraps from the paper pile.
I gessoed the pages to give them some heft, then just added lots of ephemera.
Then wrote words here and there.
I probably could do lots more painting, or doodling, or stamping in this one, but for now, here are some of the pages I like:
"Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution." --Deepak Chopra
