As I pondered my life this morning, my Mother in the hospital, cherished friends in far distant lands, others busy with their lives I reflected on the current project I’m working on.
This is another of the books I collected out of the throw away box. It was published under the direction of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and Ireland, The church of England, The church of Scotland, the list goes on. It has maps and plans inside, along with the text of course. The cover was rather battered, especially I don’t know how long it had been exposed to the elements or where it had been prior to being thrown away.
I’ve used masking tape to protect the center of the cover and I’m working at giving the rest of the cover some strength and I hope character back.
Our lives are lived pretty much like this book. We are conceived, given birth to, presented to the world, and then…………… who knows where we will go or end up. Each one of us has our own path, destination/goal, and how we achieve or get there.. is our own personal journey.
Facing the possibilities of my Mother’s journey, gives me plenty of time to reflect on my own journey. Which brings me back to friendships. Some friends you have known, have carved a place in your heart that will last forever, yet you may never see them again, for their paths have gone in different directions. Or… the value of the friendship was not balanced, that happens too.
The one person, that is the most important person of all, is yourself. When I’m working doing art projects, or creating, I’m allowing my self-expression to be seen or heard. I may be the only one who sees it, but the act of BEING is…. in fact.. making friends with mySELF.
