Nest Sketchbook. My girls and I call it that. It was hard for me when my two girls reached 8 and 10. A lot of things for me changed when I was 8 to 10 and my body remembers. My mind went back. I had to take time to stare at younger me and take note that these two girls are their own selves. That is strange. They aren't me?
I spent three months creating and focusing in my book on safe places: nests, tall buildings that could fall over but have a great outdoor pool, caves that look inviting and hobbit hole-ish, felted pillow/clouds, and some 'Jack-in-the-Beanstalk' type place. I love my 1950's books that I cut up; they remind me of the stories my mom would tell. Mom's stories were captivating and sad, as my oldest girl would say "Ugh, women were not appreciated then!". My sketchbook is hard to close now with so much in there, some ideas were kept and some were revamped, words printed and crossed out. It takes courage to make a nest, I feel courageous for honoring us all in this nest.
