old journal page


Histories of ages past
Unenlightened shadows cast
Down through all eternity
The crying of humanity.
'Tis then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Comes singing songs of love,
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Comes singing songs of love.
This is an old journal page I did a few years back, based on an old song that I loved when I was a kid- The Hurdy Gurdy Man by Donovan. (yes, I am old). I brought the scanned page into PS to alter it a bit. I 'defocused' parts so the center figure is now the focal point. That's the amazing thing about PS- you can make those kinds of changes on the fly. This page is about childhood behaviors of mine during a hard time in my life as a small child.

I love the poem and the colors you used in your page. Isn't it fun to look back at what we did in the past?
