Pencil and Gimp
This is my way of healing. It has been a very, very hard week for me.
The Willow tree (the Celtic name for Willow is Saille) is very symbolic. It symbolizes the moon, dreams, emotions, intuition, imagination, and all things feminine. I used a waxing moon to show growth. I love this paragraph explaining the emotional aspect of willow trees: "This movement on the emotional level, of allowing the emotions to come through to the surface, is the power of the willow's essential energy. Deep emotional pain blocks the energy of the body and can cause many illnesses. The willow will allow the person to move through the many levels of sadness, express the pain though tears and grief, and, by moving through these emotions, facilitate healing. The Willow will help the movement out of this negative state to a greater interest and involvement in the present."
