Featured Film Short: In The Storm

I want to share my overflow,
my overflow is a video of me creating a piece of art for myself.
I wanna art journal anyway.
So why not share that with others
in a very pleasing way
that perhaps leaves them with that pep in their step they’ve been looking for
or that inspiration to finally do something they’ve wanted to do.
It doesn’t have to be art.
(it can be sword-swallowing)
They can simply take the fact that I’m just a girl out in the world art journalling because she wants to......
She wants to have books that she made with her own two hands,
filled with her art,
and peppered with her life’s experiences
sitting around on shelves
that say,
"Pick me up and gaze at my pages."
That's a life-time of work.
I am embarking on a life-time’s amount of work
and starting it NOW!
I’ve already begun.
I have 20 handmade journals full of what happened in my life, my feelings, my thoughts, my ideas......
And I have 5 art journals full of experiences and feelings and thoughts and ideas dressed up in mixed media art.
There are artists who have been recognized for that type of dedication,
that type of work.
I don’t know their names,
because I’m terribles with names,
but I know they’re out there,
and if this type of work was worthy to them,
then it can be worthy to me.
And even if it NEVER gets recognized by this world,
And for the times I THINK I do care about that,
I write this.
dear heart of mine,
It’s the only thing you have found that chases those cares that mean nothing away.

What will you do?
