Layers of You

Layers of you  — I’ve been thinking about all our layers  — the body and soul that is  — since I came home from the chiropractor on Friday.  My chiropractor is a friend and she has no trepidation about really working my layers of fascia to get my body where it needs to be. I had been hauling firewood and water buckets for the ducks and rabbits and none of those things are good for a 56 year old back.  As she worked on my shoulder blades I felt a real electrical release and thought about the layer of nerves that runs through the body.  As the muscles around where she worked hurt all day Saturday I thought about the physical layer of the body and as I read my Norwegian mystery I thought about the mind and thoughts and the swirling of neurons creating thought and process and memory in the body.  I sent some reiki off to a  nervous horse in my friends barn last night and thought about the energy layers that surround us all and our connectedness. I could go on and on, there are so many layers that make us who we are including those external layers like friendships and loved ones.

Journaling the idea of layers using some gelli printed papers and funky type.  Layers of you...

    And then to think about ,all those layers being influenced , so quickly from pressures, direct and indirect-
    making messes in all the body , -to then be loosened up from new pressures, and and calming speaks…
    Does this make sence?
    Well I love your arrows goes both from outside in and from inside oyt!

    Corrine, I have come to love stopping by here to see what wonderful, creative things are coming from your studio and I cannot even tell you how much your encouragement and support of my own journey have meant in these past few months. I love this new piece…it is so typical of your work…playful and deep at the same time. Just lovely 🙂
