Life's Journey is a mural of Threads.

The threads of my mural are influenced by my spiritual practices, personal values, the love of friends, and special people that have been my guides. They are strengthened by my husband's love and support. The colors are brilliant with the influence of my enthusiasm for continued exploration for meaning and truth.

My threads will continue to weave their unique patterns as I explore life's roads, paths, alleys, and avenues. My beliefs will provide many hues as I continue search for a personal meaning of my existence. Artistic challenges and accomplishments will add the sparkle!

The colors radiate the pulse of my life. There is a rhythm to the design. I have danced, whirled and twirled, even stumbled, but, I do have style!

I am excited about sharing the developing design with you through this Blog.

This is a photo of the package contents I received from my dear friend Gena in France. Included was a Zine she created about D-A-N-C-E, "Quelle Couleur Estla Danse?"

Is it the color of Nature? Of Joy? Is it Feminine? A Mystery!

"One of the earliest structured uses of dances may have been in the performance and telling of myths." It was also sometimes used to show feelings for one of the opposite sex."

How interesting to delve into the origins, movements, interpretations, and emotions of this human behaviour called Dance! Gena offered an to express a personal reaction to the narration in the Zine.

"Make Your Own Dancing Spirit"

Fabric, flowers, ribbon, yarn, textured material, even faces---all included to begin the dance with Her!

Her - Gena, the Completed Doll, the Connections With You, Mother Earth....Let's Everyone Reach Out and D-A-N-C-E.

Thank you dear Gena for sharing the beautiful melody!
