Yet another background. This one is shimmery, which should make putting words on it interesting.

Seems like all of us single girls have lists. Mine is not a list of what He will be, but a list of how I want to feel. The best part is that I can work on feeling all of these things whether He shows up soon or not.

My Art Journal

This poor thing was never meant to be an art journal. Once I started painting and collaging the pages, it lost all hope of ever closing. The character sitting in the corner is Estonia, my cartoon character and alter ego.

Another blast from the past. This was my second page ever.

This is actually a step back in time. This was my first art journal page ever. The faces represent my analytical/concrete and artistic/intuitive sides. Both exist on a ground of essential attributes. I like the way the piece can be seen as two separate ways the essential person can show up in the world (if you look at the faces) or as interactions with the world molding the person (if you see the vase in the middle).

Once and future beauty, health, vitality, and fun. The work is joy. The path is clear. Now and forever, the future is here.

The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you, not knowing
How blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere
They're in each other all along.

In all trust lies the possibility of betrayal. We put ourselves at risk when we care about someone, because we trust them not to hurt us. Not to betray our confidence in them. - Kay Hooper

Maybe we just wear our bodies the way that tree wears its leaves, our physical selves being born and maturing and dying over and over while inside our spirits grow and learn. - Kay Hooper
