Feeling The Heat
Yesterday was so oppressively hot, it was a relief to head down to a local beach with friends to see an art exhibit (very worthwhile) held at the surf club. Afterwards we sipped a cold glass of wine on the balcony, so needing that cool ocean breeze! The only way to spend a summer Sunday afternoon!
This journal page is of course the hot, hot sun and a label from some sandalwood soap I bought years ago at a Buddhist Institute. Not sure why the label is here on this page, I'm still scratching my head about this. I do love the smell of this soap though. The wording on the label says 'Sandalwood ~ For Courage ~ not the absence of fear or despair, but the strength to conquer them'
I'm nearing the end of my first ever journal, having only three pages left to go. I thought I might tidily end the year in this one, but it was not to be. Last of all I will collage the outside of the journal, currently a plain black. The next one sits waiting for some new ideas and techniques...and on we go into 2010...
