I love to blog hop and found the story of the 2 Wolves on Shawn's blog yesterday. I absolutely LOVE this story and asked her if she minded if I use it on my layout. She said "no" and that she will probably use it for a layout, too. I can't wait to see hers. Thank you, Shawn(aka micupoftea), for the inspiration. You can find the story at her blog "Poetry in a Pot of Tea" Go check it out!!!!!
I made this page for the challenge at Scraps of Darkness. It is a new challenge started this month, the "Dr. Darkness Interpretation Challenge." Melinda's hubby, who is a real doctor(aka "Dr, Darkness"), is going to be the judge. This month's theme uses the word "fade." The challenge involves using different mediums. I used canvas, mists, ink, paint, broken glass(provided in the January kit!), notebook paper, machine stitching, and an iron-on for my page. (I also used Drycha's tutorial for my TH charm - check it out at SOD!) And I found the photo of the wolves on the web.
My interpretation of the word, fade, involves the story of the 2 Wolves as follows:
One evening an old man told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "my son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil - it is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego . . . The other is Good - It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which one wins?”
The old man simply replied, “The one you feed.”
I added, "remember, the rest fades away"
Thank you, Melinda, for always having such thought provoking and wonderful challenges at SOD! Thank you Drycha, for the tutorial.
And sending a GREAT BIG thank you to Shawn, for providing this amazing story on her blog!
