I’ve journaled for ever. It is only since picking up watercolors that my journal entries have gone beyond sketching and perhaps colored pencils into what I do now, but the discipline and connection to reflection and sustenance was embedded long ago.
A mainstay of my journal are my gratitude entries.
This is a good day to post about gratitude because I have a crud-cold
and I am grateful they end… wishing mine were done NOW!.

“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
