"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

new friend and journal pages

11  x  5 1/2 

Hi Pam, if you are seeing these, they are the one's I began with you yesterday.

I met a lovely lady yesterday...Pam.  You know how you meet someone and you know immediately that you are going to like them...a lot.  Pam is one of those women.  A mutual friend suggested she give me a call to get together.  Pam is creative, but has not been doing much and was ready to dive back in.  

(Pam, have you thought about which room will be your studio??)

I think I did most of the talking...must work on that.  I get so excited about this thing called visual journaling and have so much to share that I think I may give too much information for one's brain to absorb in one sitting.

I began these as examples and completed them after she left...I think, I hope, excited about beginning this visual journaling journey.  

Pam you did a great job, get playing with all your supplies...
