This year I participated in the Sketchbook Project out of Brooklyn.
The idea of being part of hundreds of artists and writers creating books on the
topic of Fear or Hope at this time in our country’s history was a calling.
I wanted to do Fear AND Hope, but chose fear as I had to choose.
I slipped some items on hope in the journal anyway.
It is MY journal statement, after all and a time of fear without hope is suicidal!
I became stuck partway through.
I kept expressing the fears I have for our country and lives
then did not want to show them publicly.
The redactions became the point of the journal.
