Emancipation from the bondage of the soil
is no freedom for the tree.
~Rabindrath Tagore

The knotted sequence of events in one's life is often an interplay of the struggle to find security and freedom.  The challenge is to find those people, tasks, structures, and habits that ground us in such a way that our spirits are able to grow and flower.  For many people, journaling is an activity that assists in this endeavour.  A few minutes of  "dumping one's thoughts" brings clarity to experiences that lie behind and ahead.

This is a 5" x 7" x 3/4" prefabricated journal that I have altered with an original acrylic painting on the outside and inside cover.  The cover is very sturdy! There are 100 recycled brown pages inside.and it is tied together with fabric and organza ribbon.  It is available for purchase for $30 throu Paypal.  Please email your interest to cori-lynn@msn.comThis item has SOLD.

Welcome to my friends from the Summer of Color!  I enjoyed learning about the symbolism of brown -- earthiness, stability, groundedness.  Hope you enjoy my piece!
