“You mustn’t be frightened
if a sadness rises in front of you,
larger than any you have ever seen;
if an anxiety – like light and cloud-shadows,
moves over your hands and everything you do.
You must realize that something is happening to you,
that life has not forgotten you,
that it holds you in the palm of its hand
and will not let you fall.”
This is from Sandy Brown Jensen’s current art journal. It is being featured this week on Tumblr’s Journal-Inspirations site.

Hey, It is our Band Width painting. It looks delightful! Thanks for sharing your journal pages. They are fabulous.
Reading “You Must Not Be Frightened” once again. It never ceases to amaze me how closely our thoughts track along similar lines. The Rilke poem is perfect for me right now. Your art just keeps getting better. The chaotic journal pages strike me as dramatic – too well designed to qualify as chaotic. I know this response is in the wrong place. Sorry, it is the only place I could find to comment.
