Which wolf will you feed today?

Art Journal

My word for this year is positivity. The moment I declared it, I was challenged by the concept. Then I heard this story on Michael Neill’s podcast ‘Caffeine for the Soul

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between two “wolves” inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Reminder to self: sticky notes that ask “which wolf will you feed today?” Michael Neill Thanks for the pep talk.

Irrational Fears

Art Journal
Irrational Fears

I was reading that if you tape your mouth shut at night, you will sleep better. It will help if you have sleep apnea. To me, that is the equivalent to being under water. Other fears: toilets in airplanes along with toilets that don’t flush properly. Being in the middle of the ocean without a boat. Suspension bridges. Bears. My head falling off. #irrationalfears #bears #toiletsoverflowing #artjournal #tapeonyourmouth #Ilikebreathing #artlife #faces

Altered Art Journals

Altered Art Journals, Art, Illustration

I started an Altered Art Journal group here in Lynchburg. We meet once a month. Everyone has a theme for their Journal and we swap them with each other. This is my addition to the theme “Pictures from Life’s Other Side” It’s an editorial on how people live when we get behind closed doors. We all have choices. You can choose to grow, learn and enhance your life, or you can lead your life to ruin. This is a pop-up book. So fun to make!
