New Years, New Journal

Happy New Year!

I have been given a couple of different journals,
and am trying the Rhodia Touch starting this new year,
so a departure from my loved Hahnemuhle journals.
In the short time I have been using it, I am not sure I like it,
but will give it a bit before I do a review.

I have not been sketching, not even really testing inks and so forth for a few weeks…
2020 took it out of me, even to the point of not wanting to write about it —
not like me.  Exhaustion is a thing, and I had it!

I’ve been sleeping long hours during our time off, binge watching tele then falling asleep mid-program, and I guess this is resetting some circuits.
Gradually I have started fooling around again.

I’m not making promises yet!

I can sincerely say Happy New year like I’ve never meant it!
I look forward to the inauguration when perhaps our country can also sleep then reset to a nation of civility and following the constitution.

    So good to see you, Katie! Happy New Year to you and Mitchell. 2021 will get better. We just need to get through this month and then, I hope, the light at the end of the tunnel gets brighter.


  2. May 2021 bring you exactly what you need the most.
