Spread 64- Horizon Pile-up

This is a photograph of a finished journal that is so thick, chunky and scrumptious. It’s telling of so many stories. I love holding it in my hands. I thought I ought to take pictures of a few of its pages and show them to you…Now they reside in Flicker…please go visit…This one here in particular did ‘things’ to me…it is a side view of the book. The horizontal lines piling up on top of each other…a great analogy with my beautiful life lately…An expansion of the range of my pursuits, liveliness, understandings, and mastery…with each and every page. “I walk to the horizon, and there I find another…” –Enya

—–Thank you to those who shared the reasons for their song…It was so awesome to read the variations on the subject and the question you presented…‘If I don’t sing my song, who would?’
And now for the give-a-way…I used a randomizing site to determine the winner based on comment number. The winner of the Artful Blogging Autumn 09 magazine copy is…Comment #4 by Renee Khan of circlingmyhead.blogspot.com/ 

Congratulations Renee!…A gracious lady who at the most painful of times allows herself to be comforted by beautiful words and images.

this is my favorite view of a journal, more than the cover or even the inside pages. i love to see the side view, the uneven stacks of pages, the hints at the mysteries inside.

WOW! I LOVE this entry! My heart sighs! Such an artwork, such a landscape, the side of the journal. I am so glad your art is continuing to “do” things to you. It sure is doing stuff for the rest of us!

Amazing living you are doing!

Orly, it was wonderful to meet you at the launch party! And, I love your blog! I can’t wait to explore more; I think I should take one of your classes. And may I say, your color choices are excellent (my favorites, of course).
