"... And how did I find you? How strange my journey was! ... Give me your hand, my almost forgotten soul. How warm the joy at seeing you again, you long disavowed soul. Life has led me back to you. Let us thank the life I have lived for all the happy and all the sad hours, for every joy, for every sadness. My soul, my journey should continue with you. I will wander with you..."

Carl Jung, The Red Book

    k., lol, today's post at 'accidental mysteries' is a trip! i just found this blog a week or so ago and each day is different - and interesting!

    i am having a good time with these layers, and yes, possibly reading jung has influenced me here. it feels so right to be able to combine faces with simple scenes. i love this combination... xo

    thank you jasmine... yes, gentle winds and the boat is being guided by the red star. for me the red star represents my Self, the widest, biggest part of me... xo

    thank you, cat.

    hi delphyne, thank you and i wish you the same!
