Soul Work


Have you ever made Soul Collage cards?

I've been creating them like crazy lately,


getting ready for a Soul Collage facilitator training
later this month.

Somewhere, in a box someplace,
probably in the storage unit that houses
all my painting paraphernalia,
I have a stack of Soul Collage cards 
that I've made over the years.
But since I can't lay my hands on those,
I've made about 50 cards since I signed up
for the training.

I'm using my digital collages
as the foundation. 
Makes it much easier to crank 
out highly symbolic images
without leaving a pile of paper trash
and cannibalized magazines.

But hey,
if you have a treasure trove
of wonderful images
somewhere in your stash of goodies,
can you send some my way?

Thanks.

Art Journal Pages # 46



Can you dream too much?

Well, maybe, if you dream
about creating things
or making your life
or others' lives
more efficient or meaningful
yet you do nothing to manifest
the potential that you envisioned.

In other words,
dreaming isn't the problem.
Dreaming, whether waking or sleeping,
unlocks mysterious forces
pinging around in your mind
and shows you possibilities,
gives you surprising answers 
to questions you've mulled in waking hours.

The problem lies in
being given a gift from the Universe
and then letting it lie fallow.

Getting that kind of gift
has more than a little hint of
MAGIC.

Art Journal Page # 45


I'm going to have to go back and look to see
what happened to Art Journal Page # 44.

Somehow, it went missing.

Given my aversion to 45,
you'd think I would have skipped that number.

Go figure.

Monday Moment


It seems like a miracle
to have a relatively tidy in-box
and a bouquet of cheerful tulips
waiting to greet me
when I finish feeding the beasties
and creep in to peruse my virtual inbox.

I love it when that happens.

Shine and Glisten




I love the idea of things just fitting together perfectly,
one inside the other, with just a bit of deft placement.
The way that edges catch the light and seem to shine,
all on their own.

I want that careful ease.
I want to shine and glisten
and let out my inner light.

You never know
when your light
may shine someone home.
