Gently nudging myself forward; getting used to being home again with all the familiar sights and diversions.
Daffodils greeted me on my morning stroll; the world is yellow, the color of new beginnings.
Monday the Journal Class begins; now that I've unpacked my suitcases and sent off my taxes I can turn my energies toward the final preparations. We're all excited. New journals are being made, old ones are being dusted off, budding writers and mixed media aficionados are gathering up their favorite supplies in anticipation.
Meanwhile I'm going over the videos and lessons I prepared before my travels; adding to and making sure everything's there that needs to be there.
I want it to be wonderful.
I want to encourage you to be lifelong journal keepers.
I read a book title this week that intrigued me. It was "Write It Down, Make It Happen".
I believe in those words.
We learn to know ourselves more deeply.
We admit to the dreams we dared not name.
We find that we can make amazing things come into our lives.
And in the process of unfolding our hearts we create beauty.
We become better writers and better artists.
We discover how much we can grow.
My journal is my guidance system, confidant and the place I go to meet myself.
Join us if you can. It's going to be a great party.
