This second card is a photo of my Iwataki great grandfather. I did end up writing about both cards and found it a powerful way to access inner thoughts that are lurking but my not have made their way out. I am excited to make more of these cards.

I have been curious about SoulCollage. My friend Fran Pullara generously offered to teach me some of the basics. There is a system and process by which you can access your deeper self but for a starter, I wanted to try making a few cards. This first card has an image of my mother's childhood wood paddle used for a game similar to badminton. It is painted and carved on a soft wood. The back side has her name burned into the wood and little indentations where the ball was hit. I get such a good feeling seeing this image that I have it as my screen saver on my iphone. I paired it with a photo of my mother as a young adult. Her sweet smile is reflective of the person she was.
