Today I remembered something I seem to forget. I do that a lot... forget and remember, and remember and forget. Every remembering comes with added layers, too... that's the goodness of dancing in those liminal, creative spaces that blend what was, what is and what will be, i suppose. And that's part of what I love about art journaling as a Creative Practice. It's just for me, it is somatic in a way that does not exile my mind or any other part of me, and has space for the kaleidoscope of my whole associative, psychological and intuitive experience. So for #creativeinvitation19 i'm feeling this... 5: my FAVORITE SUBJECT? the connections and layers of my life, feelings, experience and awareness coming together in ways that only happen in an intuitive process, visual story or a meditation piece. 6: WHAT'S EXCITING ME? Today, remembering during our Creative Practice Circle hour, what it feels like to jump into beginning a large art journal page with no plan and just the rawness of life, with lots of collage clippings and some paints and glue to get me started. There is a story in this #wip that has wanted to come forth all week... some sense i need to make of things. i couldn't really journal about it with words. There is too much grief and anger and heartbreak in me over it. I have only talked about it with my closest. But today, it began to come together in a visual way on the page, with a grace and gentleness that words and external ruminations could never have allowed... and that is what i needed to remember in the making. how art is my medicine, and sometimes my prayer, and almost always where i encounter most deeply what needs to be seen, what matters and has meaning, when words simply fail. . .
