* Digital narratives TB Uploaded - in need of technical assistance! Participant reflections on their process:
I hope that this helps your great project! Had fun completing it, and this has helped _______and I to share in new and creative ways.
Follow up note:
As I reflect on my soul project experience and share stuff about it with friends, I realize more and more how much I have gained from being a participant in your project. Thank you so much for the opportunity to contribute.
I am sure that you will produce a super-extraordinary dissertation!
Thank you for the invitation to participate in this important work!
My process…..Essentially, first it was a matter of contemplation. I “sat and chewed on” the questions for quite some time. I also found I had to weed out the negative self talk that spiralled around in my head….about doing it “right” and “good enough”, etc!!!
I thought about those quotes, readings, teachings that spoke to me about the soul and those situations, experiences that reached my soul. I thought about the times I did deep soul searching myself and what helped me get there. Basically I worked the questions. From there, I thought of images that stirred my soul and imagery that depicted my thoughts.
Hope that helped you see my process. A valuable lesson/project for sure!!
Thank you for the opportunity!!
Process… yikes! I’ve never been asked or really thought the soul – what it means and how to connect to it, so this was challenging for me. I procrastinated, minimized, rationalized, was grateful and irritated at the same time that my friend included me in the project, then after much quiet inner thoughts, felt ready to really create what I wanted to share.Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your work, and your life. I am grateful.
Once again thank you for the opportunity, I look forward to debriefing the Soul Project with you over a glass of wine or coffee. With love and respect.
It ended up being so much “unspoken” “unwritten” the meaning was so much in the photos and quotes.
As you know it always takes me awhile to settle down with things-I circle around until I find my spot ala _____. I spent a lot of time-more than I should have-thinking on each part…What is soul…what is digital storytelling and then I thought a lot about what you wanted and had to step away from that. As you know my Aunt died during this and I did take some pictures during that but when I look at them now they are too personal to share-they are of her hands and mine and her hands at the end. It was a process for me in terms of my own mom’s death and what that still means and changes me.
I am struggling with my own dissertation and so I tried to separate that.
In some ways it felt too wide open for me because I got lost in that. I have a folder on my laptop that I had been putting images some my own some not to use and I was surprised how many I did not use.
The song I sent spoke to me the first time I heard it. I still feel that I am trying to find me in different ways and different places…
I really want to see what others came up with and how you curate all of it…
With much love and respect
