Learning the language of memory

The body has stories to tell. Dreams scream out to be remembered and heard. My mind goes and goes seemingly in a never ending loop waiting for me to break the code.


They are Mine

And the beautiful woman with the flaming hair bowed
with the strength of an ancient tree and she spoke the words so tenderly so deliberately,
"They are MINE, each and every One, I have come to claim them."
And the ancient tree smiled.

What Secrets?


What secrets could my mind
unfold
If I could trust and let THEM
go?

The woman with the flaming hair she waits and longs to care
for those who's time it is to share.

  2. I truly believe one day that we will have our final answers. I wonder what we will be searching for then? I know that I have been so focused and wrapped up with recovery and facing my demons that everything else is just a shadow in my life at times. But I sure will be glad when He takes that yoke away from me! Hugs sweet sister!

  5. it looks like you're doing art therapy. how great! :) i think art therapy and being patient with ourselves, trying to make sure we feel safe and listening to ourselves are all such powerful acts of healing. sounds like you're taking good care~

    wishing you peace~~~

  10. Thanks for posting these collages, Vicki. They are very telling...very moving. I haven't been on Polyvore for a while because it seems all my creative and expressive stuff has just dried up lately. I'm thinking of you. ((((((Vicki))))))

  11. Your collages are very haunting Vicki. Thank you for sharing with us. Jade's comment about pain having beauty makes me think of childbirth. Labor can be a painful process but with such a sweet reward. Take care! *hugs* <3

    There is nothing so tender in all the world as being understood. I am honored. These came from a deep place in my soul.
    Did you join up on Polyvore? Can I find you there so that I may look at your art also. I would just love to.

  17. I actually HAVEN'T joined up on polyvore though...I just shared your art on there with a friend a day or so ago and REALLY want to try it. I plan to when things calm down. I am in the middle of a pretty intense integration with two amazing insiders...bringing alot of grief and praise to God for these precious pieces of my whole. But...maybe, before it is complete...now that i think about it...I may join so that she can do one more piece of art as a separate insider. Hmmmm...as soon as I join, I promise I will let you know so that you can view my art. At that point, i will comment on yours...amazing, Vicki. Keep it up. Thanks for listening and for understanding as well...
