Satori




"The road leading to a goal does not separate you from the destination; it is essentially a part of it. " Charles DeLint

A sneak peek at an adventure journal for a friend planning to travel to India. Journals are often sold as someplace to record night time dreams. I like the journals for day time dreams and ideas, the more vivid the better.

We found the word Satori on an Indian winery site and they suggest the word means enlightenment.


Many thanks to Aparna of Hong Kong for assisting in the search for the perfect ephemera.

Open to swaps or trades for postage stamps, postcards or coins to add to the project which is a long way from complete.


































My contribution to Mixed Media Monday's monochromatic challenge, I chose Chocolate, mostly milk, some white and a dash of dark.
