Mini Art Journal Journey - Week Six

2.13.2007

This week's prompt for the mini journal was to do something on love or hearts, (fitting in to the theme of the holiday that's approaching). I love Ethan and I love Zoey, my family and friends but what I wanted to do for this card was to share my thoughts of what love is or isn't and that I still don't know what it's all about for sure...that to be honest, all I know or have learned is that it's a living, breathing thing all on it's own - that needs space, that needs tending to, that has no written rules or promises or contracts. It's something that we need to take care of, protect, and nurture for it to thrive. I have been guilty in the past of taking the "image" of what love looks like and trying to apply it to my life and then being incredibly disappointed when it didn't look to be the same...it's been a challenge shattering the "myth" of bliss and true love that society puts out and accepting that true love, the nitty-gritty good love takes work... and it is SO worth it.
