I was bitten in the back of my leg about half way between my knee and upper thigh as I was planting my garden box. If you Google spider bite images (at your own risk!), you'll see what I mean. Thankfully, with the loving, tender care provided by Dr. Keith, I've been nursed back to health and have steadily progressed from large sterile pads and wrappings to a small bandage.
I had lots of quiet, peaceful time to just play with my paints, inks, charcoal and oil sticks in my journal. I just let everything "happen".
This is the only 2 page spread that I completed. I've been enjoying working on one page at a time and working in a vertical format for a change. I've also been doing a lot of writing - mostly as my first layer. Lots of quiet time = Lots of inner reflection.
I also had the opportunity to listen to talk radio while I was working. I listened to some interesting programs while I worked. One of my favorites was a discussion on fate vs. destiny. I like the image that appeared as I was listening to that show.
So....was the little worm destined to be a meal for that particular bird, or was it his fate for being in the wrong place at the wrong time? Hmmmmmmmm..............
This is the image that appeared as I listened to a program discussing Shamanism. It was an interesting program as well. I like thinking about ancient times, ancestors, and the customs and traditions of cultures that are unfamiliar to me.
I hope all of you have a safe and relaxing Memorial Day weekend. As we spend time with friends and loved ones, let us remember those who have gone before us. I'll see you again in a couple days with Monday's Muse.
CELEBRATE * LOVE * CREATE
