text: until justice runs down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream – martin luther king jr
from my frida journal 5.6.06
my frida journals (including the omer journal) are inspired by (of course) frida’s own journal, a mixture of drawings, paintings and words, often stream of consciousness. it’s really a wonderful book: hers. i highly recommend it.
in my frida journals, i either start with words that inspire artistic form, or forms which usually inspire words. it is free association, stream of consciousness, right brain energy. i cannot plan what will emerge. i just get into the gestalt, the zen of the markers, pencils and crayons and spirit and energy creates form, emerges words, thought, clarity.
