This journal I’ve not shared as many pages.
Death and family — the latter being what I could not share.
Some of them are still alive.
Her empty jewelry box says something to me, as I get an emotional
and physical reaction to it every time I walk into the finish room.
I am going to clean and polish it, and repair the green silk — and use it!
I bought it for her when I was sixteen.
I am not sure why I have the reaction… I am sure it will come to me one day.
And, I finished the journal with this today,
and while I may post other images I’ve done later,
I find it auspicious when a journal ends/begins on the New Moon.
