The Journey is about to begin.
What a delight is is for me to participate in
a wonderful artist collaboration called
Magical Journey Journal.
It's a round robin journal share that was started
by the extraordinary Priti Lisa.
We were asked to choose colors.
& all it's various shades,
plus other color splashes throughout.
The cover is a dragonskin textured paper
from the middle ages.....or something like that.
a goddess with words from my heart
inspired by Rumi.
The sky above a magic castle is where the participants
will sign in.
A crow, my totem animal sits in a tree
awaiting the Rumi verse:
You must have shadow and light source both.
Listen, and lay your head under
the tree of awe.
When from that tree feathers and wings sprout on you,
On an unfinished page a maiden
beckons for visitors to "Follow this way"
The pages in my moleskin are flimsy. I've had to use alot of gesso and other added papers to build them up.
There is still more work to do. I plan to do some stitching on it
and get it in the mail by this weekend.
