Art 2 –-Warm Up: #55 – Order and Chaos

JFJ - Life can come fast at times creating a lot of action, turmoil, upheaval, and chaos. The to-do list gets long, and there doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day. For some people, the day is scheduled, compartmentalized, and structured. For others, the day is spontaneous, freeform, and perhaps tumbled together.

How do you deal with order and chaos in your life? Are you structured or spontaneous? Are you balanced somewhere in between the extremes? How do you react when things do not go according to plan? How does it feel when things go just as planned?

Reflect on your tolerance for chaos and your threshold for order, and create a response that echoes the role that each plays in your life. Do you make order out of chaos or chaos from order?

Today’s Focus:  – Vis J Time Create a page based on one or more of the following: Order and Chaos, Random Words, or Operative Words

Warm Up: #56 Stepping Stones

We have all grown, evolved, and changed. At times the movement of our lives has changed direction because of the choices we have made, and at other times it has changed because the choices that others have made. These are what psychologist Ira Progoff calls Steppingstones in his Intensive Journal Workshop.

What have been your steppingstones – those significant moments of your life? What have been the moments when significant change or growth has occurred? What have these shifts meant for you and the direction of your life?

Create a reflection on the stepping stones in your life.

Today’s Focus:  Create a visual journal page using different media and techniques for overlapping – your visual journal theme today: Stepping Stones or Stumbling Blocks – the only difference is how you use them.
