Heavy wings can't fly...

Here we are again at Macabre Monday. A playground for all that is dark and creepy:) This week's theme is Metal. You can create anything you want for these challenges; yet I'm drawn to another journal page...
Metal is hard and cold; it brought back memories of how I first felt when my parents were NOT too keen on the idea of my desire to pursue a life in art and music.  I literally did a 180 and switched tracks so quickly it gave me and my friends whiplash.
Today, I help and heal people everyday.  I have a great job that allows me to revisit my creative desire.  It's also the rebel in me.  It's my turn to do what I want!
This journal page is an expression of how despondent and lost I felt when I initially plucked myself out of a creative atmosphere and threw myself into a competitive healthcare arena.

One would ask, where are the dark elements? The dead bird symbolizes the end of music and singing while the soulless stare is devoid of any creativity.  She remains grounded; heavy wings can't fly.
I thank you for stopping by.  Never stop creating!
Peace and love,
Mary xoxo

  2. Mary... your journal page is very moving... it expresses those long ago feelings perfectly... the dead bird, the dolls dead eyes are haunting visual elements...very dark indeed.I am so glad that you have now been able to return to your artistic 'self' whilst doing a job that is so very very worthwhile.
    Thank you so much for joining us at HDH this week.

  3. Perfect image and explanation of how you feel when you can't create. I bet that was cathartic. I left you a little award over at my place.
