My journal pages are filled with scribbles, scrawls, doodles, smushes of paint and free writing as evidenced here:
Smushed paint, “found image”
Smushed paint, doodles with marker, free thought writing
This is what I wrote. Looked at the picture I doodled and wrote spontaneously.
We create life trails and no not, not know
where they lead nor what we encounter on the way
as we make our way to an unknown end.
We leave a line for others to follow.
The trail of our life
Clear paths or littered with debris.

It’s been a rough several months. I suspect that in order to flee all the snow in the Eastern United States my “Fibro-Fiend” needed a bit of sunshine so dropped in for a visit. It’s been sunny and warm here and she just won’t leave.
She’s a demanding house-guest and almost all my energy is spent focusing on her needs. She doesn’t have a very good sense of humor either and I have to find ways to amuse myself. I’ve not had the energy to participate in Year of the Spark so I revisited some old, EASY Carla Sonheim exercises looking for some spark.

Put a beak on it!
Blob Critters (they don’t have names yet)
Made a blob of color using water-color
Found critters in the blobs
Drew a bit
That’s all folks. Gotta go feed Fibro-Fiend.

Very cool . . . . er rad . . . . er beastly* Jumbo Journal pages! Make sure you notice the “bindings on some of the journal books.
*Thanks Laurie F for letting me know that “beast” is the latest high compliment among those who are young enough to think of me as old, VERY old. I don’t want to lose my edge.
