This Is Why

Why do I keep scrapbooking?
"After all these years,  I come back again and again 
to continue the story
to look more deeply within
to immerse myself in color and texture
to share myself
to celebrate love
to honor those who will not be forgotten
to get to the source of the ache and the joy
to find some semblance of order in the messiness of life
to just be as I am
to escape
but also to face headfirst the Real
to put myself out there: I am."

Happy National Scrapbook Day! I hope you had a great one!
