Project Stream

 

Journal of Everyday Earth: Create three Entries each mod, Post two. There is no expectation of polished work--these are in-process entries.

Take a risk--For an entry, try something you have never done.

For Journal, think about the many ways that transformation is found in human arts:

Mod 3 : Write an entry about an earth-gift you have recently received that called up in you some association with transformation. Death is the obvious choice, and a potent one, but try to find some others as well, such as the daily roles you perform, or what masks you wear.
May be descriptive prose, poetry, or a writing/photo combination. Or post a drawing or painting (scanned or photographed), also, of course, apropos transformation.

Caution: There is every reason to include the human in your journal.
