I am the boat and the boat is me. I chart my own course. I make my own waves. I sing to the sun and the sun sings back to me while the moon watches with her darkened eye.
Found journal drawing for Lifebook 2013. I adapted a lesson from Tam about qualities you like and don’t like about yourself. The lesson was about finding those things you didn’t necessarily love but seeing the goodness in yourself anyway and honoring “the who you are”. The trait I like most about myself is my ability to just get in there and get creating(rock obstacle mover) but at the same time I only like to do it my way, so I veered completely from the lesson into this found drawing in which the being is the boat and the boat is the being and the rest came from there.
It started as a gelli print paper.
I found the elements and drew onto the gelli print to find the boat, being, sun and moon.
I am a big rock obstacle mover, I realize I am no longer afraid to just start and keep going. That is strangely exhilerating and incredibly freeing. No longer caring with others think of you leads to an acceptance that makes room for you to bring your inner spirit to the forefront. I feel most lucky to have reached this place in my life. My journey may have been easier than most but is full of tremendous loss of people I have loved(especially losing my Mom after a five year battle with cancer when I was just 25), this has made me stronger and freer to open myself to what really matters, honoring spirit, honoring those we love, living a life that drinks that last drop from the cup.
What make you sing out loud in the shower, whisper soulfully in that quiet voice, what makes you feel free? Tell me do…..
