I am starting a new journal in a new way and all I have to show for it are a few blank pages. Or are they?
I wanted to get a look of age on these pages ~ you know, wrinkled, rolled a bit, with creases and rubbed spots.
As modern women, we have learned to abhor and dread such a process. Rather than see our aging faces as beautiful, we use such words as ravaged. The art I am interested in doing these days has a ravaged look (decayed, worn, cracked, torn, stained, wounded, broken).
As a white candle
In a holy place
So is the beauty
Of an aged face.
…………~ Joseph Campbell
Now there was a man who understood beauty!
