Art Journal Page : "Quest for Clarity" -
(I used my some of my newest love - Golden Black Gesso on this page - smooth, silky blackness, you should get some !)
So on my usual trips around Blogland today, I came across a bit of synchronicity as I often do. Many of my blog friends seem to be feeling exactly like I did last night when I made the journal page above and still do this morning. We are on a quest for CLARITY.
The wonderful Paula at Little Scraps of Magic likened it to being "a wee bit out of focus". Not in an ominous bad way, but more in that stoned from eating too many "really rich brownies" way which I could so relate to. The world seems brimming with possibilities to change for the better, to let go of past roles, to put new found strengths to good use... The possibilities are a good thing because for awhile there, I wasn't able to see those at all ! The thing is though, I feel a little overwhelmed and a little unsure, maybe like that little bird who gets pushed out of the nest but hasn't learned to trust her own wings yet.
(Bird Book Page from last year - cute baby huh ? That's me, 43 years ago! but it is also me just yesterday ;-) !)
I don't want to get back down there and crawl, or go back to the paralyzed state I have been in . I feel hope that that chapter is closed now(at least for now !). But I would like some more CLARITY about which paths I should choose...you know like the big maps at the mall where you get the "you are here" arrow or dot, and the rest of the map shows the "big picture" ? How do you get to CLARITY ? Well, now my dear, you get there the same way you get anywhere else,
one step at a time.....
(As I wrote this post, I kept hearing a song in my head - a blast from the past big time - from Cat Stevens. This was on the first record (yes, I said record !) I ever owned. Still love a little Cats now and then !!!!! You were right way back then, man, "The answer lies within...")
