This week starts my 12 week journey in an online class with Misty Mawn called “Full Circle”. She is such a wonderful teacher and only offers the one online class each year. There are so many creative opportunities in this class: art journaling, poetry, iPhoneography, drawing, and painting! She often throws in a recipe or two as well.
This week I created a digital art journal page using photos of myself from three different periods of my life. Then I wrote a poem to go with the image.
That was me…This is me
That was me
Five years old
Candid gaze, challenging
I knew I was special,
Always determined to have my way
I had lost that little girl
Living other peoples timetables
Hiding all my dreams inside
This is me
Becoming strong again
No longer content to be invisible,
I am now dreaming on the outside
