Back:The front is dry pastels, Pitt pens and collage from the collage sheet I made last week. The back is a photo with two of Kim Klassen's textures with text. The back reads, "I hope to reach a point in my life where I am able to be in a crowd and simply issue blessings to all life around me instead of feeling the annoyance, the judgment of people and my own inner judging voice".
This was inspired by a moment downtown a few weeks ago when I felt overwhelmed by the sheer presence of people wound up, bustling and shoving. I was transported back to the retreat I took in July studying with Penelope Smith and an experience we had as a group where we had all been given very personal and individual blessings by a soul incarnated in a cat. I remembered thinking what a gift it had been to be there, receive the blessing and wonder if I would ever be capable of that level of presence.
