Visual Journal

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.

journal page 8/5/09

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.

    my how we get so good at judging ourselves…good accept the starting and stopping as part of a process…I like this, the way the black swirls bring it together, the words following the lines around… I can not read some of it though even enlarged..what does it say.. on the right side?
