My friend Fonda gave it to me and I find its size and variety of paper pages very inspiring! Thanks, lovely one!
Today's two page spread is split by another inserted page.
This being is on the first page.
Something about a balancing act is playing out...
And it continues on the second page.
Kind of reflects my quest for balance these days.
Hormones are a huge challenge, as this perimenopause/menopause transition takes place. I keep taking deep breaths, trying different remedies, telling myself I'm not really crazy, and getting lots of support from my women friends who have been through it before me.
This too shall pass. 😉
And on the other side of the coin, life is pretty good right now. Soaking up the sweet moments of joy wherever I can.
Hope you're finding plenty of joyful moments too, Beautiful Ones!
I learned the technique from Kecia Deveney and have fallen in love with allowing these new characters come into being.
This is my new friend with his face painted.
And here is the complete persona, Maso.
Maso is kind of a little demon. (See his horns?)
He is that part of us that does naughty, slightly mean things every once in a while, but spends time regretting and feeling guilty about his actions later.
You know, like when you take that parking place even though you see the other car coming because, hell, you're in a hurry too today! Or like when you don't tell your waitress that she forgot to charge you for your second drink. She was kind of slow after all.
Maso doesn't always do what's right. But like all of us on this chaotic, bittersweet, bumpy road we call life,
he's trying hard to improve, and live the best little well lived life he can.
Maso joined my other poppets on the shelf in the studio.
I'm starting to imagine their adventures when the house is dark and I am sleeping away in my night sweat drenched bed.
