The next step was not only to find a picture of a knight or protector of some kind, but:
"I want you to think about what you need to protect and nourish your creative spirit. Think about the things that sustain you. What’s needed to shield you from outside criticism and your inner critic?Today we will be constructing our own Soul Armor!I want you to think of strength and protection. Think about what you turn to when you are “under siege”. What does your creative spirit NEED more of? How do we keep all those critical voices from crippling us in our crusade?"
So here's what I did to express all that...
I will say this - for some tough guys, it was hard to find a knight who didn't look completely GAY. Seriously! What's up with that fluff on his hat and the horse's hat? This was the best I could do. Now y'all know I am totally down with the gay boys, and a lot of them are extremely tough, but the knights I was finding honestly looked kinda nellie. I did NOT feel protected. But the big horse with his big horse eye - how freaky is that? - looked very protective. So there you have it. I'm not quite done coloring in his horse coat, and I put a lil silver leaf pen on the knight, but not too much because I was afraid he'd turn into a big shiny mess. Just to gay it up some more, I put silver glitter glue on the horse's hooves. I just couldn't help myself! Sorry, big protector horse.
Till next time, Cheeka.
