today i meet with my printing group. we bring a pot luck lunch,
chat and then go to work. there has been a nip in the southern
california air so i made a pumpkin ginger soup. before i go
i wanted to show you a journal spread in my altered little japanese book.
moving forward with attitude
i found this book in the used books selection at the library.
it brought back memories of being a college student at the
university at santa barbara, feeling free, living by the beach
with my high school best friend as my roommate. the vietnam
war was going on, friends were being drafted or dodging the draft,
protests on campus rather than studies ran the roost, 'antiestablishment'
talk at the cafeteria. i developed and ran an on campus tutoring program
designed for the minority students who met the enrollment quota but were
not prepared academically. it was a heady time. i read this book then.
drawings by gibran
it was a one dollar treasure. i plan to alter the book
and created poems from the pages within.
wishing you a lovely day
