I’m terrible at maintaining a journal, but have accepted my random starts and no longer consider it stopping if I don’t do anything for a while. I also accept the book as a good phone message place, or grocery list, or scratch pad….I am working on integrating the visual and word better. I tend to either write or draw and I would like to merge them more, at least some of the time, in a way that feels organic. So, here is one of my recent journal pages.
It began with doodles of markers–paint markers, calligraphy brush marker, chalk paint marker–and then I added some words that came up in relation to how the doodle felt related to my life right now.
