december reflections | circles

I live my life in growing orbits which move out over this wondrous world, I am circling around God, around ancient towers and i have been circling for a thousand years. And I still don’t know if I am an eagle or a storm or a great song

I am taking a class with  Ardith Goodwin that is bringing me back to my creative roots, to the things that have existed in me since before I even knew myself as an artist. It is helping me create a foundation and framework and excavate my voice. One of the assignments here at the beginning is tapping into the things that I love, have always loved. 

and Honestly, I haven't given much time to the assignment yet. ( taking a class during November and December is like making my way through thick foggy syrup ) but with today's December Reflections prompt, I share the cover of an art journal I made to work in during this class ... and that prompted me to look through my photos of past art work ... because there are SO many circles.
