This may be my favorite art journal page from this month, and it comes from a very unlikely source. This semester in A.P. English, my daughter Clara studied the poem, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Eliot. I helped her analyze and understand the poem and one line stuck with me, the saddest line in the poem to me - "I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each. I do not think they will sing to me."
As this page came together, I thought about the poem and the mermaids. And I changed the journaling to read: "I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each. And I know they will sing to you." It is, not surprisingly, a message to my teenage daughter.
As my month long revisit of art journaling comes to an end, I hope that I continue to hear the mermaids singing to me. And I hope that they sing to you.
