Picture Myself Here

12 Mar

A picture’s worth a thousand words, but this poster’s invaluable–at least to me.

The funny thing is, I found it at almost exactly the same time Eva found hers, neither of us looking for them.  We made them over a year ago as part of an exercise in The Artist’s Way.

Last week, I went to move the buffet in my dining room to temporarily place a mirror behind until I could hang it (not wanting my son to break it first).  That’s when this rolled out from underneath.

“What’s this?” Michael wanted to know.

“Oh, nothing,” I assured him.  “Just a little collage I made with the girls last year.”

But it really is more than that.  The power of visualization is evident. Just a short year later, this poster feels like it’s actually coming to life.

What does the life you want look like?  Make your own poster.  It seems silly, I know, but it really does have value, as much as you can imagine.  If you want, send us a photo and “the story” of your collage to Chick Stories.  Just don’t be surprised when the life you visualize starts becoming real.

    I’m so relieved to know that I’m not the only one who had tucked mine behind furniture. I just didn’t have a place for it (or perhaps wasn’t ready to share it with the world). But I soon will…
