Gluebooks!

I just started playing in my Gluebook again. I find it so soothing to glue a few pieces of paper into a book without thinking any more than color and/or shape.  That's after it catches my eye, of course.  Spending five to ten minutes each morning doing this little exercise does wonders for my creativity! The rest of my day is opened up and lived through artist eyes. Here's the last bunch since May 26, 2015.


 
 This was May 26, 2015.  This one I accidentally glued into the book up side down....wonder if that means I am thinking about meditation all wrong?  I'm going on a 10 day Silent Vipassana Meditation retreat, near Yosemite at the end of July, so I should be totally straightened out.


 May 27, 2015. Renew. Got a lot of attention on Face Book with this one. Everyone is so ready to retreat!! Wanting to get away from stress and enjoy nature for a change.


 May 28. 2015. Horizons. Mimicking nature!


 May 29, 2015. Bloom! Feeling like I'm getting into an artistic rhythm and allowing myself to open.


 May 30, 2015 "If you can see your path laid out in front of you, step by step, you know it's NOT your path. You own path, you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path". Joseph Campbell


May 31, 2015. Sunset. The sheet music is "September" mono-printed, someone told me that the hawk represents the crone. The receipt is from the Social Security office.


The last entry in this particular book before I started in again, was March 10, 2013! So it does a body good to clean out boxes of old journals looking for a thread of continuity. Hope you guys enjoy! I am!

One last thing.  I joined a face book group for gluebooks and I think I made some one mad because I've been UN-friended.  I just want to say, Sorry! I don't think I understood what you wanted from me and if you will friend me again I promise to behave!

Peace,
Ellie
