a song for the evening

A friend had asked for an uplifting song, and I suggested to her this one.  It was perhaps slightly melancholy in sound, but had a good message. ( I think the original intent was the whole religion/God will be there for you . . but I think it can be taken also as how anyone: friend, or family, lover or even stranger, can be there to support another human being in need.)


"After The Fire" - by Amy Grant

After The Fire lyrics- Amy Grant

(Chorus:)
After the fire is over
After the ashes cool
After the smoke has blown away
I will be here for you

After the stillness finds you
After the winds of change
All that is good and true between us
This will remain the same

Slowly...slowly
We turn the page of life
Growing...knowing
It comes at quite a price

(Repeat chorus)

After your time of wand'ring
Along this lonely road
There will be many voices calling
Mine will say, "Welcome home"

Slowly...slowly
We turn the page of life
Growing...knowing
It comes at quite a price

(Repeat chorus)

I will be here for you

art journal - pages

I've found some time to work on my art journal.  I'm pretty happy with it's progress.  I find myself usually starting by creating some sort of background ( whether is be collage, paint, stamping), then journaling around or directly over what I have.  I'm finding that I am enjoying revisiting older pages, covering up part of the journaled parts, and adding more collage elements on top of it.

here are a few pages of mine I've liked so far.

My RUSH spread -  originally journaled during my trip into the city/return home after watching "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage" in NYC on the big screen.

Collage revolving around the quote :"You curl your hair and paint your face. Not I:I am curled by the wind, painted by the sun." from a translated poem by Julia De Burgos

Just a random collage, from a journal page.  Artwork is from a cover of a card I recycled.  Look at me, being all green!
