For the Journey ~ Stage #1

Today marks a pivotal point, the first day of a journey.
Yesterday I thought about how I would document this journey my daughter and I are embarking on.
I knew it had to be something significant, a vehicle if you like to carry us both through this emotional landscape...something to help us go within, reach deep into our inner resources to search for the strength we both need to see it through...

The Journey starts here ~>

I don't know how long the journey will take, days or even weeks I'm not sure but as I said yesterday this journey is going to be big so I needed something big to document it and contain it...


I decided on a paper support, (support - something an artist uses to paint on) must be at least 4 feet wide and preferably 6 feet long, expansive enough to contain the many (hopefully) rich details this journey will afford! As with any journey though, the planning and preparation was not without some head scratching, I only had thick lining paper to use for the documentation plus it was not going to be wide enough without joining it, which in itself posed a problem as I noted ~>


I needed to get going there and then! So once the method of attachment became clear I proceeded to create the support making notes on it as I began to intuit the route of our journey, it felt a bit like I was both making and consulting a road map!

A road map with signs about what we could experience from this inner heart journey...



I have a rough outline of the terrain and where this journey will lead but the details I'm not sure about,
I pretty much have a good idea of what the destination will look like because I have been to a similar place before!

I do hope you will join us and give us your support, I will add any comments or ideas you make to the journey document on reaching our destination.....thank you.

Keep a watch out for stage 2 of the journey... and if you are brave enough you might like to follow and make a similar one yourself, it is a bit like a mystery tour!

i adore your intuitive process... the words, the stitching of paper.

we are pieces, and yet whole.
tentative perseverance.

i would scribble-draw on mine - angry zigzags, flowing lines of sadness, circles of hope....

an inspirational process.
