The deeper sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.
Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well from which your
laughter rises was oftentime filled with your tears...
When you are joyous, look deep into
your heart and you shall find it is only
that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy
When you are sorrowful look again in
your heart, and you shall see that in truth
you are weeping for that which has been
From Khalil Gibran's The Prophet
This has been one of my very favorite quotes or as long as I remember--my first favorite quote actually. Joy is our third word for our third week. Something I've definitely experienced, but not much for the past three years or so (except for times during my three months on Moloka'i). Maybe this project and remembering this quote will help bring it flowing back into my life again....
This is my first attempt at creating a collage that includes one of my own photos. I'm excited about it... I've had this vision since I started getting serious about photography but had no idea how it all might come together. I really enjoyed doing this. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have happened without the creative nudges of this ecourse. And for that, I'm grateful...
