One of the activities that we did as a journaling prompt during my local art journaling class with Mandy Thompson was “find” a poem in some random text. Mandy handed out some pages from an old book from which she had very randomly torn pages. It was our job to “find” another message, or poem, hidden within the text on those pages and incorporate it into a journal page. Now, I LOVE to write. Creating a new message from an existing random set of words was an extremely fun exercise for me. Below is the page and the poem that I found in my randomly issued set of words.
