Cheryl shared this and it stuck in my head.
My passions are journaling, painting, reading autobiographies and Buddhism,
ditzing with Mitchell, and playing with the kittens.
NOT necessarily in that order, though if I had to choose
between writing or painting, I’d choose writing.
I now am back to making journals just for me, no watercolor lessons, and so I write a lot in the Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook. Memories, bitching, great quotes, spiritual thoughts, whatever. It is not s pricey as the watercolor journal, and the paper takes a lot of watercolor. What I do for the one problem —
what happens to a painted page if you the other side too wet — is I glue wax paper in between really nice pages.
If you don’t and you slop a ton of water, you may move a painting…
I don’t know how people who don’t make stuff lift up their Soul!

Me… why I journal!
