I seem to be very busy lately...just life! Wanted to get these posted before the end of October. As you can see I've been a bit sporadic; but on my behalf it is a full moon and I was left unsupervised.
Got side tracked! You know.....LIFE. It always seems to get the way of all my project. Anyway, here they are, 10 more for the month of July. You will see that some days were just ho hum but other days I was truly inspired. Still doing the shadow work.
This is the cover of my new altered Gluebook. I was going to add
"Phases" as the title but like just the visual showing the phases of the
eclipse, I think it says it all.
Staying in the past keeps you little and narrow. I'm done with
that, I want to be free to experience all that is out there that piques
This is the inside cover. A recording of my artistic journey with out
thought or plan. I give myself five minutes, 2 or 3 images, sometimes
more and a glue stick.
That would be MY evolution. I feel like a paleoecologist at a personal dig, excavating lost parts of my life.
Ready for a big change! New Moon in Cancer, lots going on.
Love this image! Solitude is a wonderful thing especially for ju…
Each of these "gluebook" pages is created in less than 5 minutes without any thought about outcome. After the images are glued down and it feels finished I look for a message. These are my findings.
Don't go another day, week, month or year without finding and harnessing your passion. Whatever it is, hold on to that while letting go of things, people and behaviors that do not behoove you.
To be brain healthy, keep learning and firing those synopses which I see as the precious jewels of our brains. Out of the primordial soup of our thoughts come the tadpoles of ideas that will grow into our brilliance.
Sacred. This page is for my Mother born 103 years ago on this day, July 3. She was an avid knitter and created so many wonderful sweaters, dresses, suits, coats and a multitude of gifts and household items. She was 83 when she passed and had been creating fabric arts since the age of 8.
Step onto the Path and become awakened! Allow nature to teach you what you nee…
All in all I feel this has been a very good art and emotional month for me. I did miss two days (the 13th and 30th) of gluebook pages but feel just fine with that. I also traveled to Salem, Oregon for six days at the end of the month but was able to keep to my practice. So here are the final pages for June 2015. I've added a bit more description for those curious souls who asked.

This is the threshold to the awakening I am venturing. It is ancient and earthy and I need to trust the deepest parts of me to continue my quest. This is the clay and mortar of our souls that goes deep, holding us altogether.

Who looks outside, Dreams Who looks inside, Awakens. In looking for my true nature, I'm cracking open and shattering the old seeds and reflections I've been holding on to. Looking to find the music in me. I'm ready to finally live my intended life.
I am feeling so grateful that I can dig deeper and deeper into my
subconscious. Each time I sit down to create a page in this small book I have
no idea what will appear. I am mindfully getting out of the way, letting
my Inner Being take the controls to inspire and create whatever needs to be

Welcome Moonbeams! I was calling the Shadow Children I have called back home on the Dark of the Moon, Demons, Gremlins and other such demeaning names. I am so sorry for that! I have come to know them as my Moonbeams! I have welcomed them home with a open heart and arms to live out their lives at home in comfort.
Heart Seed. "Find the seed at the bottom of your heart and bring forth a beautiful flower." Shigenori Kameoka. My Moonbeams are blooming everyday. My hero, Mahatma Gandhi lived in his truth as much as any human could, a great mentor!

Height of Reflection. The more I do this work the more I am able to reflect clearly. I am…
Again a special thanks to the many creative people that make it possible for me to explore my Inner Being by providing so much creative fodder for me play with.
June 2015 Week 2
I've invited my Gremlins, Demons and otherwise pushed into the shadows type personality defects Home for a family reunion. I am trying my best to live a new and better life. These are my explorations so far.
I've invited all!! Even the stuff locked away in the deepest darkest, long forgotten filling cabinet of the Underworld.
This one is called Traveling, On the Move. I am imaging that "they" are moving back to my heart center and wondering what all this could be about.
Racing the Moon. Still gathering for the Reunion.
An Idea in Full Bloom. I'm so excited about having invited my shadow side into the light. I have high hopes that everything will work out really wonderfully for all of us.
Had a dream and couldn't remember anything about it at all except the words "Who…
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the creative people to have provided me with the images I glue into my Gluebooks. I find the images everywhere! I am grateful for all those creatives who are helping me find my way.
This page is done with a gelli plate mono print on deli paper. I brayed paint onto the plate,
then used a rubber stamp to remove the paint in that pattern, then printed the deli paper.
Started Hot Yoga again! So hard to stick with it. But can't seem to live without it. Boy o Boy! I am out of shape. Learning so much about my body that I have been ignoring for awhile. Good to be back in the swing of healthy things again.
I love Joseph Campbell so much! Here's a beautiful quote;
"Your scared place is where you can find yourself again and again".
