I have just now gotten to my page in the Awe-Manac....it has been a busy day here in the studio trying to complete custom orders....I choose not to make a mosaic for my parachute for one of the prompts...but rather choose words that HOLD me UP....I use these words as much and as often as possible!! The Journal Juju was to write about the various relationships with your hair....I have lost my hair completely twice in my life time...Once when I was sick and I wore my baldness as a badge of honor....a survivors helmet!! The second time was unexpected and for no reason that anyone could tell and no one could say if it would ever grow back...my eyebrows and eyelashes fell out too....At first I was so sad...somewhat embrassed...and tried wigs...but they never looked like me...one day I looked into the mirror and saw myself for the first time in a long time...the inside self...and it was at that moment that I never wore the wigs again...because the baldness did not define who I was.....MY HEART SOARS now as I learn more about myself from the inside out....And after 4 years my hair grew back....GO FIGURE!! (perhaps it was just a SELF lesson!)
Artfully Yours,

I'm sure you are just as beautiful without your hair!
