2009-10 Daily Journal Page Challenge...Day 301

2009-10 Daily Journal Page Challenge -- Day 301: Out the Door Shines Brightest
Here's one of the things I've noticed over the last year -- perfectionism is a killer. It stops you right in its tracks and runs right over you. Petrifies the blood running through your veins, makes the air you breath poison. And although I enjoy making things very, very pretty -- it gets kind of soul-less when all I do is that. So I'm experimenting more. Things don't look as pretty as they should, but experimenting is taking me somewhere and I've got my eye on where I am and where I'm going. One thing I liked about this journal page is that the vines I drew unintentionally formed the shape of a helix -- can you see it? And a helix not only refers to the mapped out mysteries of our genetic code but to the spiral continuum of alpha (beginning) and omega (ending). Life as a 3-dimensional experience. Anyway that prairie dog sure looks...expectant? happy? Ready to walk into the snowy moonlight?
