I am late coming to the Mary party today and since I didn't make anything new this week, I randomly chose one of the first SoulCollage® cards I ever made as my day 8 offering. This was get-hair-done-and decorate-for-Christmas day and I always forget how many hours the Christmas stuff takes. I've downsized each year, but it's still a massive undertaking for a 75-year-old.
When I made this card in 2004 I called it Mood Indigo as a Committee suit card, describing at that time some depression I was dancing with. When I drew the card today, however, this looked like a Jewish woman filled with great wisdom. In SoulCollage® we always do "I am the one who" statements to make the images personally relevant. I am the one who venerated the sacred feminine from a very early age and sought her out in many religions and traditions over the years. I am the one who sits at the feet of royalty imagining Mary in shades of purple and blue. I am the one who sits quietly with her and asks her how I can make sense and stay peaceful in the chaotic world we live in. She puts her finger to her lips and says, "Shhh. Just let it be."
