I confess, when I first read our assignment this week, I thought...eh piece of cake. I was stumped though. Really had to think and examine just how I was going to go about this page. Once I had named it, it became special, which is the point of searching our souls.
I decided to use the DelMonte symbol tag. It looks kind of like a heart badge. This lent to little badges along the edge which became symbols for badges of courage.
1. To face the past and leave it as a memory and accept it as history.
2. To seek out remedies that might not be found only as a little pill...holistic.
3. To take the excessive energy and turn it into productivity and not destruction.
4. To recognize that rest is needed not just when exhausted..to heal.
5. To accept the help and guidance of others but especially of those who love you.
I send Healing Love:
this message of healing love to every mind trapped in illness and depression
These are hard symptoms to acknowledge and find a remedy to alleviate the conditions and how they make you feel. Power comes from within and is met gradually (if at all) Each condition and the symptom is individual as is the treatment so, patience becomes necessary while Dr's. prod and experiment.
Usually there is not a 'cure' so the symptoms are treated while you wonder
will anything ever really help
The only image in the magazine I could find with outstretched arms was a bullfighter...so that is my stencil image..
The shackles represent the disease
breaking the links represent the courage to explore the symptoms and receive each badge.
And to receive the love that is sent.
The hearts are the spillage of love going forth to help the illness plagued to struggle with their inner complexities and to become whole again.
I give forth the energy of healing love.

My husband is going to be recieving my healing energy.
Craig has struggled with Manic Depression all his life. I am not sure if the medical field acknowledges this is herditary or not. I believe it is, as his mother has battled with the syndrone for as long as I have known her and Craig's siblings do as well.
Our son has symptoms of the illness but has not been officially diagnosed.
This illness coupled with dibilitating regular health becomes a battle.

Life is cyclic so I wrote what lost and found was meaning to me in circles.
Sometimes lost 'things' of perceived importance brings into focus what we needed to find. Sometimes we never really lost anything and find what we were missing to be in our self all along.
It is a huge circle blowing between realms. (present life mingled with a past)
I interpret the leaf to be the bringer of insight, old and new, as the cycle continues in our journey into our soul.
I will put the picture up when I get home.

I take the Tylenol pm so I can drift to sleep...sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't
but most of the time I will drift better than without it
I was asleep
something whapped my leg
(like wake your ass up)
which of course I woke up
thinking what the HE....
turn on the light and I hear this like rattle metal rattle kind of sound
oh it was the wind...
I got up and walked to the front
so okay I have to address this noise
so I try to pinpoint it down
and it is in the back where I am ...oh joy
so it sounds like something is trying to dig through the metal door
I begin thinking this has to be a HUGE critter...
so I stare over at the door
but it doesn't really look as if it is being tampered with so I am puzzled
Craig has a plastic barrel of chemical he keeps back there so the temp stays constant on it...
and he has it on a nice stained piece of wood
kind decorates the space ...
okay THAT is where the noise is coming from
then I see "it"!!!
a MOUSE! but he is trapped in a trap I forgot I even had there..
flipping around cause he didn't get trapped where he would just die...it is his leg
I think I better get him out or next thing he will pull loose then he is still IN here alive!!!
so I go to the kennel and get a shovel
and scoop him up and toss ...trap and all...him out the door
I feel better
only what if there are more of them
and I didn't want to mess with more traps right that moment
I stuffed a pair of sweat pants around the door
so at the least they weren't visiting me while I sleep..
that issue is solved
only I still don't know what whapped me to wake up????

...we as a group work on the same themed pages...
Our new journey has started...
Our very own Kathryn The Collage Diva one of our moderators, is heading up this journey. Go to her blog... you can get there by clicking on her blog in the side bar.
She has our daily exercise on her pages. Here I am showing day 1 and 2.
(So it won't be very hard for YOU to catch up)
Day 1 My scanned items comprised colored paperclips, staples, and asprin...pretty much my office supplies.
Day 2 added my wash...green
Today we make an envelope and she gives us a template..

I know you have seen the side bar and floating words describing...whatever of the blog within. Some of the fellow bloggers have this feature.
It is called???something and has a site even to go to and create your own word fog...this is the message I was looking for.
Or even better HOW does one create a word fog on their blog?

because fergies caught FIRE!
i went to the post office
i hear the fire bell
and the fire engine pulls a loopy in front of me
and i see the one further up the street
come across the street but at the end of the block there....
small town ya know
and i see him back back up
oohh this doesn't look good
immediately i think that fergies is on fire
and i see this big huge ball of smoke plume up
nope this doesn't look good at all
then marlin (owner/boss) comes fllllying down the road and looks as white as a sheet
he had to be doing 100
so i go into the po
and i ask paul what is on fire
he didn't know yet
then elaine comes in
i know she knows she has a radio
she says it is fergies
i says oh nooo
so i go home to change my shoes in case i can do something
but when i come back the street is still blocked off so i call ...colleen...fill her in
when i get back i can go up
so i do
marlin was cooking the brisket for tomorrows festivities
and he flipped it
the flames shot up and got sucked up in the hood
then the hoods grease caught fire
he went to pull the ring that puts just such a fire out
and_ nothing_ happened!
that was when he flew up the road to go get ghena
after calling the fire department
it ended up the kitchen is toast
but now they will be able to get the hood they did need...
but the bar is still serviceable
after we got things cleaned up in the bar
she is opening tonight in 2 minutes
but she won't really need me
so i came home
i wouldn't think it should take but a couple of weeks to build a new kitchen
basically all is needed is a new hood
the grills are fine
maybe a new ceiling
and new microwave
that one melted
everything else was fine
didn't even get the boxes of beer wet!
and they line the wall from the kitchen to the door
that was enough excitement for me
i work at the creamery at 9 in the morning so i am gonna go on to bed now..

I love the new feature following blogs with a time line update. I am not quite sure how it all works yet or what needs to be done to update my blog with this cool feature, but I should figure it out.
Yet I am still trying to figure out how to place my award (offered by Kathryn Antyr -CollageDiva) and name others that deserve an award recognition within...I will get time to sit and ponder this once winter comes..
Meantime, I am excited the soul journal pack has created a group to keep journals alive and keep the new found entities with in the spirit inspired and viewing.
I have a LOT of journaling to do to get myself up to speed, because I want to keep apprised and fresh along with the group.
If anyone happens to follow the soul journaling list and fall onto my blog, even tho I am behind...go to the yahoo group soul journaling:
inspired by our own Sarah Whitmire, beginning the project on her blog
taking us into the journal soul...
there is a lot of encouragement, beautiful artwork for inspiration, and journal prompts to keep filling the pages of your journal.
Know this has been a grand experience and revisiting journaling techniques was just the boost to get me active in my art journal again.
So, get your muse in gear and get thee journaling!
