art journal prompt {week 3 }

This week's prompt: i believe

I"m not going to say any more about the prompt itself because I think it's important for you to define where you want to go with it. It can be a big or little as you want it to be. As serious or as playful...

If you want to know about my meditations on the subject, keep reading...

This week I wanted to explore something a little lighter (for myself) so I went with the theme of I believe in fairies

and pulled out lines from Leonard Cohen's God is Alive, Magic is Afoot. Being a selective pagan, I only took the lines that talked about magic!!!

See:


Although some of the poem triggers a bit of knee jerk anti Christian reaction in me, when I look past the idea of God, I think this poem is quite beautiful and captures some of the awe and delight that I associate both with magic and with faeries. Hence the combination of the two!

As a child I was enamoured with the idea of faeries, wanting desperately to see them in my life. I should, in retrospect, be very thankful that I never did... But my childhood faith and sense of wonder is part of what led me to this path and part of what spirituality means to me.

Wanna see more? Of course you do...


I know the picture is a little blurry... the curse of camera phones!
