Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending Teesha & Tracy Moore’s Journalfest 2011.  It was held at Fort Worden in Port Townsend, Washington, such a beautiful setting.  I took classes from Traci Bunkers and from Juliana Coles on Thursday and Friday and Saturday I taught my “Layers of Life” class.  I had the most wonderful amazing group of 15 students!   They were all so eager willing to learn.  I always love that each student does the same techniques but each of their work is personal and so different and unique.  Teaching them was pure joy for me.  I loved it.  Believe me, I was not perfect yet I felt as if a whole new world had opened for me.  It was so exhilarating. I had the most wonderful smile on my face the entire time.

Journalfest was such a wonderful experience of humanity, caring and love.  Thank you Teesha & Tracy!  They worked very, very hard on it and we all had such an amazing time.  All together the experience truly made for a life changing event for me.  I owe a very special thank you to another person that has helped challenge and push me help me find who I am, Orly Avineri.  For me what really makes Teesha and Tracy’s events so wonderful is that I always meet and make such wonderful creative friendships.
