Stringing or Stinging words together …


 Journal Page – Mixed Media:  collage, drawing, found objects

Thoughts about the things people say to us, whether implied or blatant:  We string our words together as children string colored beads, sometimes the patterns that we make are less than pleasing to the recipients.

Words are the spells we cast, when spoken they can take on a life of their own, coming alive from our lips and traveling into infinity.  All that we say is alive forever, never to be taken back.  Unspoken words have power in a different way.  Sometimes it is good to keep silent.  Everyday we make a choice to bring good with our words, or bad.  The universe does not make adjustments, or judgements – but our hearts know the difference.

My five-year-old self who still believes inside my heart.

My first “best friend.”  I trusted her forever, and sometimes she was slightly mean to me – but I adored her in spite of herself.

Life was so much better with a true friend!

  2. Lynne,
    After our emails yesterday, I just had to visually journal a little while to put everything into perspective. I knew you would “get it” and it helped me process what I was thinking.
    Sometimes photos of our young selves really are revealing. I think that photo of me and my best friend says it all!

Tell me about it...
