I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way — things I had no words for. ~Georgia O’Keeffe

I started a new journal on Monday. There was a full moon on the longest day of the year – it seemed an auspicious day for a fresh start.
The pages are unlined and lightweight. Not typical of the hand bound journals I’ve been making for myself the last couple of years, but it was on hand and I could tell that the Inhabit Your Territory book was at a close.
The first thing that I do with a new journal is begin to prep pages. I differentiate between Empty pages and Blank pages. [HERE’S a post that talks about that.]
So often, my voice is wrapped in colors and lines. English is too stiff or too far away. Text without image no longer satisfies. I think that lines and color must have been my first language. Having pages filled with color and shape put me one step closer to speaking the language of my soul.
Am ready for the days ahead. Ready to listen. Ready to collect. Ready to reflect.
What sort of containers do you create for your soul work?
