This weekend is Beltania and I will be teaching a journaling workshop.
We will make an eight page book out of two large sheets of paper with a ribbon binding, add some color, find some images, tear and glue, write and doodle, play.
We will work on the idea that magic happens when you let loose of careful planning, when you just let the colors and images dance on the page, opening up your heart for surprises.
Also leaving some space for later photos and ephemera will make it a wonderful little memory book from the festival.
Holy work, this creative journey is.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you,
But sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art."
