my own art and what I want to do with it. And so to that end I also hope to make better use of my blog which has been neglected for far too long (it's a wonder I have any readers left. I think of this more as a personal diary I keep for myself which is why I turned off comments). Writing here reminds me of the writing I did when I was younger, when I'd put out into the great big beyond all my thoughts, and inner most secrets I shared with no one. Fear not; this won't become one big TMI blog (who wants to read all that crap?)! Besides that what my journals are for. Ok, here's a secret I'll let you in on...
I love creating and playing in art journals, but I don't write in them... until I'm upset. That's when I unleash all my pent-up frustrations and write with a vengeance! The regretful side is that then I've basically destroy my beloved books. Several years ago I really let loose on my favorite book at the time. Afterwards I was so shocked at my ability to forget myself and just purge my anger into that poor, little, sweet book. I kept it and have learned that it served a purpose. So now though I still only tend to write when I'm working out an issue, I'm more mindful to write in a notebook that I don't mind burning afterwards.
who knows this might get interesting!
Happy New Year!
*since this is my blog/diary I'll write in it using poor grammer and punctuation as I like. Back away all of you with your red sharpie's intent on correcting the rest of us!
