I have started my journal with a verse from the Tao.
|One step at a time.|
My Journal starts with two quotes that have inserted behind a page I have added to my journal. i.e The title page.
|quotes written on a tag & inserted behind cover page.|
Life is a series of doors opening and closing, experiencing change and new life challenges. Each of us has different experiences from the very first door we come through when we arrive on this planet to the very last door we open when we leave
I have closed the door of my past and opened a new one to step through and move forward into the future. I have renewed hope in my heart aspiring in my step and will make the next chapter of my life one to remember.
One step forward
This is followed by the first page of my Journal. This starts with this quote.
Without opening your door
You can open your Heart to the world
Without looking out your window
You can see the essence of the TAO.
A step forward no matter how small it may be, is still a step in the right direction. R Wright
then i wrote this on the page before challenge one
Follow my steps to unlock the door to view my vision of creativity.
Remember the entrance door to sanctuary is inside you.
January 1, 2014 - Week One - Photograph, sketch, paint or incorporate your front door.
As the door opens on our new year, we all share the bond of having an entry into our home, our lives, ourselves.
Through the artistic medium of your choice, show us a bit of where you live in the symbol of your door, entryway or porch. Think a bit about how you can use your door to express your personality, your life, what you value.
I was inspired by a card i made for my son's birthday.
Now my journey begins.
Behind the closed door is a written quote about a door.
Quote: Commitment Unlocks the Door of Imagination.
Allows Vision and gives us the right stuff to turn our
Dreams into Reality.
This is followed by a bird hidden behind a vase.
