She’s My People

This is what I call a “Hattie Page” in my Art Journal. One night, my bestest friend and soul sister Hattie went through my art journal sketch book and wrote sneaky, secret positive messages on random pages for me to find. When I found the first one, she confessed, saying I could erase them all if I wanted (she wrote them in pencil) but instead I chose to preserve each one, and draw around her page, so that periodically, no matter where I am emotionally, my Journal will contain a positive page sparked by her love and affirmations. This is one such page. Her message was “my wonder, my strength, my Katy”. And I have to say I feel exactly the same right back at her. And after an intense weekend together where we discussed our fears that after being so bound together our paths might diverge. And establishing that for both of us that did not mean we would stop loving or supporting the other, I came home to find this page. So here it is. 

Dedicated to my Hattie. My forever friend. No matter what.
