We Found Our Inner Phosphorescence

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.  
Albert Camus

When we share our inner journeys with others, the more we find a commonality of what it is to be human.  Continually amazed at how the creative process forges deep bonds with others as well as within ourselves, we thought we'd offer you a few participant's wanderings and insights.  

After creating a series collages and wax resist water-color paintings, we stopped to really look at what we had birthed and asked questions of it.  What type of mood or atmosphere was portrayed?  What emotions were associated with the colors and shapes used?  Did a sense of place come to mind?   What colors and
shapes were used?  Forming these words into a vertical list, we then wrote down 4 or 5 immediate
associations with all of the words.  Circling 8 or so words that held the most interest or curiosity for the creator, these words were then linked with other parts of speech to form a wandering thought, a reflective paragraph, a surprising poem.

I am reuniting……..floating into continuance.
Always the passion, the transformation.
Joy from the past, peace from the future.
Giving over, giving all.


I AM life, itself,

I AM the essence
                             of Mary,
                                         light as a breeze
                                                                   accented by

I AM layered
