Embrace the healing power of these three things: Music, the Ocean, Stars
— Source Unknown
All “Illustrated Wisdoms,” the featured art in this 2023 “Paths to Joy” series were created by splattering viscous Dylusions shimmer spray on 11×14, 98 pound, Canson mixed media paper, then spritzing with water to see how the colors would run and gather. When dry, the above quote was evoked by “feathering” with water washes and tempera paints, meant to suggest the power of the oceans and of music. The final work was creating the darkness in upper right corner so that the stars could be seen.
My understanding of this Illustrated Wisdom will change as the art reveals itself in new ways.
Three years after Succeed and Soar first presented the twelve “Paths to Joy,” the theme is revisited, with more enriching resources. The goal: No matter the troubling energies disturbing the world outside us, sanctuaries can be created where joy can flower within.
Separate but a complement to “Paths to Joy” will be a four-part, “Re-Creating Eden” series. For those with interests in writing and reading, “Wordsmith Stars” and “Word Witty” will continue. There’ll also be three “Story Talk” posts where novels I’ve read are explored for author technique and craftsmanship.
The one Succeed and Soar series that is done, with much joy, are the Select Short Videos, which will present brief, beautifully-produced stories ranging from heart-warming charmers to a mystery that’s both amusing and macabre.
Lots to look forward to, including next week’s post. where Thrive! presents a tiny fruit with huge health benefits.
In the meantime – and throughout the year – remind yourself of these five things daily [from Heartfelt Holistic Healing],
- I am amazing.
- I can do anything.
- Positivity is a choice.
- I celebrate my individuality.
- I am prepared to succeed.
Succeed and Soar!
