Spread 58- My Own Very Little Juncture

Juncture is one neat little word… ‘A particular point in events or time.’ Exactly a year ago today, I’ve posted my first art spread on my blog, only one year, but for me, very eventful in terms of personal evolution. I have been diversified. I became what I have only dreamed of becoming. Since that first defining post I have discovered a few things about the human’s capacity for creativity and interconnectedness. I have learned to notice my own landscapes and those of others, about sharing and mostly about the many joys of creating out loud. Looking back at my first spread, I see that I have realized the objectives on that spread. I am still on my jaunty journal journey where I travel solo, and from time to time, here and there, I am genially joined by others while on their path to their own peculiar destination. You are still invited to meet up every now and then, as I further my art journal, a book unfolding an intricate yet simple story…one page at a time. I so enjoy creating these pages, scanning images from my physical journals and my photographs into Photoshop and further working on them to achieve the digital journal spreads. I fully agree with a quote by Ruth Perla: “A journey through the senses may well be the swiftest way to the soul,” and this is what it is to me..a journey through the senses. But it is also the meeting with individuals, near and far, that fill me with light. Please accept my gratitude for joining me in so many beautiful ways.

I understand completely your words here and echo each and every sentiment. It is just so hard to help someone who has not experienced this sharing of the soul as Ruth Perla so aptly writes…to understand how this medium opens up channels of creativity and exploration like no other.

So very happy to have landed here…however that heppened…and I raise my glass to YOU in celebration of your 1 year blogoversary!!
