Aix en Provence
|My first ever visual journal page|
"This is my life's garden. A metaphor for my new life after cancer."And then on the next page,
"Now more than ever, I want to live life at the fullest. ... Now I can greet each day with a sense of adventure!... My garden is filled with hope. I survived on hope and it's given me wings."As I progressed with each page, then book, I changed, helping me with my "new normal." But what happened in the class was even more phenomenal. I saw women, who was darkly depressed, spring to life as we cut, pasted, wrote, searched for that right paper, photos, paint. Over time, I witnessed people coming to terms with problems (physical, emotional or even spiritually) and most importantly, they were growing.
