Spread 209 – The Work May 5, 2013Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Gotta do the work…sing sing sing sing, until a sweet sound comes out, a voice you recognize as yours, yours only, moving you to the core. Then self-love will promptly follow, fear will melt away, you will feel it in your bones. Until then you gotta sing sing sing sing, never tire, until that sweet voice comes out, until that song is found. But once it is, you gotta continue to sing sing sing sing, to find more songs of course. Songs you learned outside are…well…songs you learned outside.

A Luxuriant Nature Journaling Adventure—-A 5-day workshop

Spread 208 – Dweller Of The Doubt April 29, 2013Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Arriving at a new page the visual journaler finds parts of her world she didn’t know existed, foreign, unpossessed places, places of fear and desire. Fear of losing what was once established, desire to find a renewed sense of self-value. Truths concealed, revealed, and then concealed again. The process offers her comfort and cheer. Uncertainty is certain though. She knows this will only last for a while, a short while.

Spread 205 – And The Ugly April 6, 2013Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
When we believe we have finally achieved our own aesthetic, made our own beauty, we get stuck trying to achieve that same appearance again and again. Once we allow ourselves to move away from that that is limiting to explore ugly, we are able to get unstuck and move on to greater and truer aesthetic. Not easy. It helps to make plans to make something ugly sometime soon.
Live Art Journaling Workshops In Southern California April 4, 2013Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
When we create, not only should we tolerate struggle, discomfort, and fear, but warmly invite them all to take part in our creative process. More than any art form Art Journaling is a process that can DEAL with them all. And not only deal with them, but replace them with a deep and honest sense of freedom and forgiveness for our high sensitiveness. Please join me to one of my monthly 1-day workshops in Southern California, join me for one time or become a process journaler. Consider the unlimited and unlimiting wondrous ways of mixed-media through the celebrated art form of Visual Journaling.

Spread 204 – Flogging March 23, 2013Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
It’s horrifying — but we can do something about it. I’ve just signed a petition to change the law in the Maldives to stop rape victims being publicly flogged for “sex outside marriage”. Politicians there make a lot of money from tourism, so a global outcry can get the president to face down extremists and act. Join me in this campaign, and send this link on to others:
Spread 203 – After A Long Time March 17, 2013Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
I didn’t come a long way to continue considering others’ expectations of me. I did come a long way, however, to consider others’ feelings, thought processes, and pains, when they choose to share them with me. I hope they do the same for me. Some go around the world to find out what they need from themselves. I did that and finally found it right where I am and in my visual journal.
