Self Love

I'm focusing on art journaling these days, have been doing little else.  I've been enjoying it tremendously...the whole process, including frequently reorganizing papers, scraps and images torn from magazines.

I like the hunting and gathering exercise, pulling a lot of things together, deciding what to use or not, playing with arrangements of elements.  It's its own kind of Zen.

It feels like a metaphor for life ~ gathering disparate elements, sifting and sorting and rearranging to create something new from the pieces that are left to work with.

Your art journaling is fascinating and such a good metaphor for life too.

I love the way you are constantly reinventing yourself. You are fearless!

I think you are not so much reinventing yourself as always rediscovering yourself and finding out it is good and getting better all the time. You keep returning to you and finding the best parts. xox
