Art Journal — Living, Growing, Blooming

Living, growing, blooming.  All wonderful things.  But sometimes I forget that this is what life is about.  Too concerned with the day to day have to’s that I forget to live, grow and bloom for myself.  Taking a moment to step back into life and enjoy the simple joy of it.  Living, growing, blooming, breathing, seeing, feeling, experiencing.  That’s what I am doing today. How about you?

    Glad as always to see you allow yourself some “me” time. I shall be doing the same but my journal page will regretfully show the tree cut down as that is what is happening here. 🙁

    First, to your art: I love the “elementary” or “basic” feel to your background. It gives the whole piece a sense of strength. Your tree, too, shows strength and wisdom with the goodness of life showing in the veins of the bark. And, then, the leaves, possibly representing people in all their different stages of their journeys. Remarkable art, Corrine! Your message of “living, growing, blooming” is well received here. As one moves to a more “senior” journey, the relevance of this becomes even more important. Seize the day, I say!

    Awww gorgeous Corrine, look at the leaves…each one of them tells its own story! And yes it all takes time…time to grow, time to bloom, to fruit and also time to rest and look inward after the harvest is over…to have the power to start a new groth in spring again…thank you for reminding me 🙂

    Now this is one great tree! And living in the moment shouldn’t need a reminder, and yet it does. Thanks for the reminder and the cool art!
