Turn it up!

One of the activities over at Collabor-ART is one-to-one journals. There's several on the go, and I've teamed up with Siân. My journal is "Turn it up!" and hers is "Attitude!" so there could be some interesting pages coming up.

Here's my initial offerings, complete with links to the songs. Enjoy :)

Motörhead - Locomotive

Eagles - Get over it

Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon

Trying to hold it together......

If you're on the Wright Brain course you'll recognise this; if not, read on :)

Poor Dave*, life used to be so simple.
He worked in a very male environment, with lots of manly activities going on; noisy machines, heavy lifting and communicating in simple, non-ambigious language accompanied with appropriate gestures.
Then one day he found himself in a very different environment, surrounded by women, where the loudest noise was that of typing, and the heaviest thing to lift was a pen. Even more disturbing, the language was very complex and one word could have many meanings, signified by the lift of an eyebrow, or the stress on a certain letter.
Poor old Dave persevered, and slowly he began to understand the complexities of this new environment; the politics, rituals, pecking order and even how to distinguish who wasn't speaking to whom at any given time.
The breakthrough came when he walked in on a conversation about shoes, and realised just how important this was!

No wonder he's cracking up!

And so the wheel turns...

I figured it was time I posted something again, and then I'll go and see what you're all up to. There's been creativity over the last couple of weeks, but it's intermittent, and things which aren't ready for blogging yet.

One thing I can post for now are these pages created for the Altered Gypsies "Wheel of the year" journal. We started with the solstice last year, and now that our Beltaine pages are done we're back to the start.

These are my pages for Spring equinox and Beltaine.
