how can we not sense 
the big THIS 
in which we fit, 
{just-so and sometimes unknowingly}

how can we not love
the other unknowing ones
brushing arms and breath,
with spark of
THIS too

how can we float
on the full and pushing expanse
below our little
and not realize
{under it all}
that we don't hold ourselves up

Double Art Journaling Giveaway!

Giveaway is closed.  The winner of the Double Art Journaling giveaway is


(#9 not including duplicate entry)

Thanks to all who entered!  


When my lovely artist-friend Anna asked me to join paint-covered hands and host a giveaway geared toward beginning art journalers, I enthusiastically agreed.  Knowing that we both have found healing and wholeness through the practice of art journaling made it all the more sweet, and of course, there's nothing better than sharing a piece of what makes you whole with others.

Anna has put together these beautiful little boxes of beginner supplies– everything from favorite pens to gesso to a handmade journal– and they go perfectly with my new ebook, "A Year of Art Journaling", which is loaded with techniques and prompts guaranteed to last you a loooong time.  

So here we are!

Yes!  One lucky winner on each of our blogs will receive both "A Year of Art Journaling" and a beginner art journaling kit.

This giveaway will be open from today, Thursday September 18th,  until Tuesday evening, September 23rd, at 8pm eastern standard time.
