I hope everyone enjoyed reading my recent film and book reviews. I promised to publish them quite some time ago and it feels good to be able to finally showcase the work of Katy Walker Meja and Marcelle Martin. Great cinema and literature feed my soul and it feels wonderful to be able share this sumptuous banquet with all of you.
While Mercury finally moved direct early yesterday, we are not out of the woods yet. The time is not yet ripe to begin new ventures or make bold actions. The next few weeks continue to favor completion of projects, contemplation and planning of new endeavors, and processing old material, perhaps in a new way. While watching a program on creativity and mental illness, Van Gogh was prominently featured. I saw his work with fresh eyes and re-imagined his pain transformed alchemically into visual ambrosia. It is easy for me to grasp the profound healing potential in channeling pain into beauty. Here are a few offerings I have chosen from Van Gogh’s incredible bounty of re-configured suffering. Before I share them, enjoy this quote found on one of my Healing Cards created by Caroline Myss and Peter-Occhiogrosso
Everything lost is found again. Everything hurt is healed again.
