For the past month, I have been working on a very special book for Amy at Pathways – A health crisis resource center. After many years of service, Amy and her husband will be leaving shortly to begin a new life in Kentucky. Although I have only known Amy for a short time, her radiant spirit and warm friendship have enriched my life greatly. She has been a constant source of encouragement, support and good humor. I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with her at Pathways.
Thanks to Dan Averitt and Tim Thorpe at Pathways, I had the opportunity to create this very special going away present. Together, we made the watercolors that were used in this book, while dreaming provided the inspiration for the shape the book and it’s box would take. In one dream, the image of the signpost from M*A*S*H* appeared, suggesting signposts along the way for Amy’s journey. Knowing how much she loves her basket of inspirational cards, I used words from the cards for the signs in this flag book. It was great fun learning how to make this new structure, fueled by the creative energy and guidance of the dream. Bon Voyage Amy and best wishes for a safe journey to your new home. We will all miss you!
