When the sunlight pierces the darkness and you are in community with kindred spirits, you just cannot help but dance.
ljgloyd (c) 2017. Manipulation in Photoshop of found images.
I am continuing the charting of my current interior cartography through photo-manipulation.
I first read the book Women Who Run with the Wolves over twenty years ago. I did not like it much back then. I thought it was an epic mixing of metaphors, offering me no personal insight. However, something has compelled me to read it again. I guess a life time makes a difference since I am learning much from it now.
As a response to my reading of the first few chapters, I made this quick collage of some found images. I may use it as a reference for a painting. Maybe.
My interpretation of the image: when one experiences the “dark night of the soul” and her inner world becomes parched and barren like a desert, the archetypal “Wild Woman” will emerge in that landscape to bring it back to life.
More to come……..
