I will share a few journal spreads here. I have been doing a fair amount of journal work- it's sometimes the only way I have to release the anger- rage sorrow and fear that I have about our country right now. The tone is so hateful in the states as well. I just read in Iowa they have frozen the minimum wage and have made it illegal for cities to raise it. Where is this coming from- I am so upset and feel that the moral compass for this country is missing- it certainly is in the white house and congress. Sharmon Davidson, a terrific artist I have met online had this on her blog today and I think it just might be the subject for a journal spread soon. http://sharmond.blogspot.com/.
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.”
is Evil – It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride,
superiority, and ego.
“The other is good – It is joy,
peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy,
generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
This First spread is The Search for America's Missing Moral Compass. I
am raging with the approval of a woman that bought her way to the
Secretary of Education. She hates public educations knows nothing about
it but because she contributed so much money to the evil bastards this
is what we get- as a career educator is just enrages me- they have NO
caring at all for the children and students of this country- everything
has a price tag now.
The next spread is Where is the Hero? I am hoping for us all to be
heroes in doing all we can to make this government one that is for the
people and not just billionaires and haters.
love this quote-It was the inspiration for this spread. I am so very fortunate to have friends that have
really had the keys to doors of mine that didn't even realize- I mostly
have all open doors now.
