Two old Papaya Art planner pages set the scene, plus the words 'Recovering a Sense of Abundance'. Then a page from an old Susan Seddon Boulet diary with the image 'Northern Lights' (1990) and this quote from a favourite lady:
Adventure is worthwhile in itself.
And two magazine images and the words 'Trust your intuition', 'Inner Wisdom', 'Tree of Knowledge' - messages from the Hazel tree.
A favourite We'Moon diary page, I've been saving for a rainy day (like today!), with a wonderful poem by Caitlin Chero (2009), and the image Ocean Sanctuary by Susan Lirakis (2008):
Dusty cobblestones glow in the darkness
I walk out thinking the moon is illuminating them
but the sky is only pinkness
A city engulfed in its own smog and light
Red sky prophesies say this is the end of days
A lone frog singing says the days will last
Outside I am overcome
Inside I am too big for my own cage
Shining intensity at my own smog
It glows too brightly
to see the moon
or stars beyond
I wait for a shift
For things to end
Or for a miracle
that will come
and clean everything
Like the rain
the frog is calling.
A lovely autumnal image from an old Toast catalogue and a postcard I designed and had printed for an art challenge a few years ago which reads:
With every step
I take inside,
Truth comes closer.
A gorgeous image of a wooden stile from County Living and the words Choose with no regret, two wee stickers - one saying 'sanctuary', the other, 'believe', a pensive Toast model and finally the wonderful words The Journey Begins.
I've always seen September as the month of possibilities, the beginning of a new school year, and with this New Hazel Moon, I sense the beginnings of an adventure, a fluttering of anticipation, which I think is permeating this dreamboard...
I'd love to know what you see/feel when you look at it :)
