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


  1. Love the freedom in your pages! Really beautiful work. And I love the quote too. :)

  2. Hello! I love your blog! May I know where the quotes in these pages come from? Like 'movement is medicine' and 'the secret is that words create the universe, and we control the words'?

  3. Hi Lalav -- if I know where the quote is from I credit it. If there is no author, then I don't know the author. I do remember that words quote is something I heard in a workshop, and the movement quote might be something that came to me while doing yoga. . . . thanks for your question!

  4. Thank you! I'm taking inspiration for my graduation essay in dance therapy and that sounded interesting! I'll quote you, then ;)!
