I READ THE NEWS TODAY
Actually, I read some art books today -but the artist's quotes and pictures were so inspiring; they felt fresh and new! I love to go to the local library over the
Cedar River and just browse. I’ll check out books and bring them home just to flip through and return them the next day! Today, I found myself drawn to a batch of books about art journals and altered books and creating art IN journals. It inspired me to write down some of the quotes from the books into my own little dream journal. I always have my dream journal with me to write down the day’s news, or song ideas, or just anything that floats into my world that I find inspiring. I started out just by jotting notes in my datebook until I had too many thoughts for my datebook and branched out into journals. I’ll never go back! I have some old journals where I traced around my Nephew Aaron’s hand when he was a little boy. I did it over the years and have a nice visual memory of how small he was when he was a little boy. If you don’t already journal, why don’t you start today. The thing I like best is that there’s no “right” or “wrong” way to keep a journal!
