Hero's journey

Dear friends,
I am doing a workshop on the Hero's journey and this is my first collage about my hero's journey. The snake is the most important part. Mostly I am scared of snakes but as an animal spirit it has much to teach me.....explorations of the mysteries of life and lifes magic, exploring my goddess energies, immortality. The garden is how I feel about life and how beautiful it can be and so full of beautiful discovery. My life is very simple so the garden is also a simple and relaxing place to do my journey. The honeycomb is also about life's sweetness and all the little compartments and things that go on in life. The hiking shoes are how I walk through life although ballet shoes or red shoes would also be appropriate. I walk through life with many different shoes but one of my favourites is hiking shoes. The world globe is how much there is to explore in the world and the books how I appreciate books in my life and learn so much from them. I love the flowers too and always like seeing them on my walks.
I have another collage which I will write about in the next post.
lots of love from susan in australia

eeeps! The snake is scary, although I have 2 fake snakes in my home because like you, as a totem I appreciate them. I love the honeycomb and the hiking shoes. It makes me want to find mine, put them on and go find some trees! The depth and meaning of the collage is inspiring. Thank you for sharing your art.

I was immediately drawn to this post and love the collage. (perhaps the snake is my totem too?). I also enjoy reading about your process .... great post, Susan!
