Spread # 101- My Creed July 3, 2010Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Three times a week I take my daughter to her Kung Fu practice, perfect milieu for journaling. The rhythmic beat of routines repeated, wise words spoken, and philosophies explained by a Sifu (master) encourage mind traveling and heart gazing. If not that, at least a good chunk of time with no distractions and nowhere to go. A perfect opportunity to get a little journaling-on-the-go kit, the one that has just a few pens, maybe some Copic markers, not much more. To go to these pages that were previously started, the ones not quite sure where they are going. Pens begin to make their marks and before the time ends there are paths and connections made between random spots of colors, words defining new associations, a whole map unfolds. A few spots of tea, a bunch of flowing lines, a beautiful Kung Fu ‘Student creed’, all turn into a personal creed, lines forming mountains, valleys, roads depicting a daughter’s world and your own, three times a week.
