Spread # 113- Journalfest 2010 November 5, 2010Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
There comes a time in art journalers’ lives when they ought to be able to forget themselves, entirely, see themselves as non existent so they can finally become themselves. It may not make much sense…it does to me. It is a time to be crying a voiceful cry not to silence it, smile a teeth-full smile, not cover the mouth, move on an expansive dance floor, not keep the arms close to the body, hug someone a tight hug, not pat on the back three times, and make art that flows from one page to another, not constrain it to the edges of the page. It’s a time to overlook one’s own frailties, become a part of a human experience, and by doing so, naturally become one’s self. I had such a time in Port Townsend, Washington state, at Journalfest last week.
