Begin Again

Create a "poem" by subtracting words from an arbitrary text; then rewrite the words to make them your own.

 I used a Sharpie oil-based marker to mark out words on a page in an altered book (right side); then I slightly re-organized most of the remaining words to express a reflection that grew out of blotting out the words. From this exercise I was reflectively reminded of God's care and providence as I gave myself permission to "Begin Again."
I jazzed up the edges with cut pieces of decorative paper to add visual interest on the theme I was reflecting on, and then used stencils to put the "bold type" message that had come to me through the experience of art/journaling.
