It's good to be going home.

"Fear less, cherish more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, listen more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours." (Swedish Proverb)

Inspired by Danny Gregory's new book, The Creative License: Giving Yourself Permission to Be the Artist Your Truly Are (which you can read about here.) and his yahoo group ( a very lively group, whew) I've been working in my own little art journals, one that came back to me after a wild trip all over the continent, and one that's just my regular "morning pages". Examples of both seen above.

For some beautiful journals and book bindings, check outthis blog.

How beautiful! I especially like the top one (though, because I've got bad-ish eyes, I can't see the left side). Everything you said is so true.

I like your art journal pages. I also like the altered childhood images you have done, especially the one of you walking down the street with the wings........
