Last week I met with old friends to create art
What a fine time we had -
laughing, telling baudy jokes, coloring in our coloring books,
creating collages, dining on yummy food,
sharing our colorful stories!
It felt so good to be together - OK to be old
or not quite old, all of us with most of our 'marbles',
still full of love and smarts!
I sat in the corner surrounded by magazine images -
which I carefully cut out and pasted on cards
letting the pictures arrange themselves
a private 'SoulCollage' experience.
Later I'll invite the images to speak to me
perhaps bringing insight and surprises.
Here are three of them ~
She is the part of me who swings lazily in a wicker basket
~ whilst imagining herself meditating and eating properly
These gals are tres' sophisticated, and somewhat vacuous -
but they intimidate me :(
She is the part of me that still hasn't put all the pieces
of the puzzle together ~
I want to get to know these images of 'new friends'
who tempt me with their mystery ~
~ MEANWHILE I'M LIVING WITH THE UNKNOWN ~
(and that's OK)
