237-The Unforeseeable JourneyCreating in a journal, as in creating in life, the best I can do is create little, create this second, this moment, not even the day. Create a brush stroke, a continuous area for it on my page, so it can breathe, soothe, nudge. Allow scarcity to fill up the spaces, lines and accidents to determine my transformation. I surrender, but hold on to my defiance. I dance. I retreat into my stiff shell and then burst open. I know what I am doing, then I forget. I help myself heal and then become triumphant. I dance. I hold my own hand as I climb onto the ledge, then I close my eyes and jump.

Wonderful, moving words. This is how I feel when I art journal and when I paint — when I’m in deep — I’m flying, I’m falling and twisting and pounding against walls and kicking and thrashing and wailing. I love your words and journal pages. Thanks so much.

Wonderful, moving words, Orly. You captured how I feel when I’m art journaling and painting — when I’m in a zone and mashing things and screeching and vibrating with sound and energy and wailing until my lungs are dry. Your words and art journal pages resonate with me. Thank you so much for sharing so much.

Oops! Apologies for the double comment! I didn’t think the first one went through…

Such a beautiful inspiring spread. We see the pain, fear and the joy, and wonder in your struggle. This mirrors our lives and struggles and prods us on. To challenge, to try, fail, pick ourselves up and try again and soar.

Hi Orly, I loved what you wrote, and transposed it into my own way of saying pretty much the same thing…. … because I am also an artist, not a journal-ist. It spoke to me. This is how I changed it; very little, but more applicable to what I feel and do…..I also dance…so it was appropriate…. .Your artwork deserves more space than a journal page.

Creating art as in creating life, the best I can do is create a little, create this second, this moment,. Create a brush stroke,a blot, a continuous area for it on my page, so it can breathe, soothe, nudge. Allow scarcity to fill up the spaces; lines and accidents to determine my transformation.

I surrender, but hold on to my defiance. I dance. I retreat into my stiff shell and then burst open. I know what I am doing… then forget. I help myself heal to become triumphant. I dance. I hold my own hand as I climb onto the ledge, then I close my eyes and jump.

WOW! These journal pages are AMAZING! Especially the spread on the right…there are hidden messages waiting to be excavated and revealed in those drawings….
