Circle Journal

If you have been following my blog you would know that I have been involved Circle Journal with a bunch of wonderful women that I met at Artfest.  My theme was Song Lyrics.  I wanted them to interpret a song that has touched them in some way.  Music is one of my most cherished pleasures.  I love all kinds.
What I am going to do is everyday show you one of the pages and hopefully find the music to accompany the piece.   I love them all they all show me a side of each one of these beautiful ladies. 

The first page is the cover .







The song I chose was "Lazy Eye" by Hem.  It makes me weep every time I listen to it.  My mother had Alzheimer's.   It is called the "long goodbye".

This song makes me think of my mother.  And when she was sick I would look at her with my lazy eye.  And remember how she was before.  A tribute to my mother.
