I am taking Effy Wild’s Elements of Art Journaling class and this week’s element is water. I LOVE water. To be near it, immersed in it, floating in it, gazing with longing at pictures of it – I’m all about the water.
I realized quickly that I refuse to feel my feelings, at least, not fully. I seem to have been shown as a child, that it is not safe to do so. It can be quite dangerous, viz. my father’s rages. It is safe to be frozen, but it might just be better to feel, no matter how painful feeling may be. Because there might be closure, and the freedom to move on.
I would encourage those of you interested in investigating your inner landscape (with a view to arting it out), to check out the class. You’ll find it in the WildPrecious Studio, http://www.wildprecious.ning.com.
