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.

“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
