That Red Rose


I needed a simple collage
today
to even out the clutter in my brain.

It felt wonderful to touch beautiful papers
and smudge a giant glue stick. 


Then,
the task of writing focuses my brain,
clarifies my thoughts,
and brings me
centered into the moment.

aaah.

Wonderful page, Kathy :). The red rose is totally stunning. I find that writing calms & quieten my mind too, see I'm not too chatty :). HUGS.

I love the rose, and your words really struck a chord with me: Sometimes it clears my head just to page through my sketch book/journal. Thank you for the inspiration!
