1. Portals

Women will draw doors where there are none, and open them and pass through into new ways and new lives.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes

I hear a whisper, a teeny buzz in my ear. Is it from an early spring mosquito or static from my music player or breeze from the blowing trees of Central Park or mumbling from pedestrians on East Parkway? I concentrate. No buzz, no static, no breeze, no mumbling, but I still hear the whisper. It is getting louder and my grassy place under the maple trees is beginning to shake. Bo

“Door to the Serpentine Landscape” july 2007 by Samantha Menzies


Design a special door that leads to a Lemuria using a Paint Program
Turn your image in to a jpg, resize it and save in your document file.
Design a bag, filled with all the things you will need to live and work in this cyber world.
Turn your image in to a jpg, resize it and save in your document file.

Within moments of deciding to seek the creative grail, the elixir of creativity, you pass through a special portal and enter the imaginary world of Lemuria, the world of le Enchanteur.

As you arrive le Enchanteur gives you a special bag filled with talismans for your journey. In your bag you will find a packet of dream seeds, spectacles, a candlestick, a tiny anchor, a medallion with the imprint of the Unicorn and a set of wings. Each bag contains something that has been chosen specifically for each recipient.

In your workbook take the time to show and describe your bag.

Do not misplace this bag or let anyone take it from you. Keep it with you at all times.
