So this week's Creative Therapy Catalyst is to remember something about your childhood. Hmm, some of it I would just like to block out, but there were good memories. A memory of me walking through our not-so-desirable neighborhood on chilly mornings while I delivered newspapers popped into my thoughts and stuck with me. I could not get it out of my head. It hit me that I have always been a hard worker. I am serious about what I do and go about it with focus and diligence. I think that sometimes that makes me a bit of a loner. I remember feeling very calm and peaceful in all that stillness even on the mornings when it was cold or damp. So here is a photo of me from around that time period (check out the Farrah Fawcett hair-do). I took some recent pics of the newspaper just to capture the other parts of the theme. This layout is also for the Color Combo Challenge! These colors are very calm and soothing to me, sorta like my alone time at 5:00 was back then.
Journaling: I guess I was always a hard worker. At age 13, I got up early for my paper route. I remember enjoying the quiet as I went about my task, focused & happy. Even at 5:00 a.m.
