Sojna’s comment: “Hello Orly, What a generous give away. Can’t tell you how happy I would be to attend one of your workshops. I guess it would be kind of like a miracle to win? I would be ecstatic to win any of your workshops but if I had my choice it would be The Visual Journal as Sanctuary in Portland, A visual Journal….a place for Independence Star Idaho, or The Visual Journal as Sanctuary in Redondo Beach, CA. I would just like to take a class from you and no one comes to INDIANA!”

I am so happy you won Sojna, I’ll email you shortly! XO

Living in the background of stories, left alone in lifeless remnants. Whether revived or turned to something else, almost always from ashes beauty comes to the foreground.

Spread 272 – Distress Inks September 13, 2015

272 Distress Inks

In his talk yesterday David Whyte was describing the different types of people who take up the route of The Camino de Santiago in Spain on a quest for spiritual growth. One of the types was “the one who is bullied to join the more eager one”. Bullied was an interesting word choice as you would think who takes such a long pilgrimage route without wholeheartedly wanting to do it? I had to think very hard about that. I got stuck with that among other things. As usual it always comes back to the self-absorbed, me. Aren’t we all? I thought to myself, I never want to be bullied to do anything as wonderful as someone else claims it be, so why would another want that? I have my own inspiration, rhythm, timing, time to sink into the existing, and time to innovate. Then I was further thinking, I am myself a bully. With my eagerness I bully people I love into doing things that I insist would be “incredible” for them. I swam in my experiential pool for a while more and found pattern and examples of me bullying my kids, other family members, my friends, students, strangers even, rushing them, cornering them into “beautiful” spaces that they may not be ready to explore or experience, and may never be ready. That made me very sad to realize this about myself. Many of us do this to each other on a much much larger and more aggressive scale, in much more harmful ways; Culture to culture, religion to religion, gender to gender, and so on. It’s much more subtle than the kind of bullying we know of. The kind that goes on in closed doors or between nations and continents. Yet very harmful I believe. I am going to work on it…I am going to try to mind and tend to my own business. My journaling, my trusted companion, can take all my bullying and all the inks of my distress…humans on the other hand, not so much.

Spread 269 – Burn Out August 21, 2015

269-Burn Out

Ironically, sometimes, from the most extreme exhaustion comes an unforeseeable fire of life, the most robust expression and beyond that, an explosion of ideas to store for the future. These burned out papers were found down the cliff by the ocean where it seems like a campfire was built to commemorate a surfer that died in this particular spot. Letters were written, it seems by teenagers, and burnt. I guess, I imagine these to be what’s left. I could be completely mistaken. Inspiration comes in many earthy yet etherial ways. Blessed am I to notice, or have friends that notice such dainty things. Collaborators.
