Sunny days encourage me to venture outside, my journal pages seeking sunlight. As energizing as spring and summer can be, it is also a time to enjoy the long summer days, pause in the shade of a tree, admire the millions of shades of green in the forest and garden, and enjoy natures creations. Summer colors and textures make their way into my journal, a collection of my observations and inner journeys.
This is the state of my journal this summer – soft paint splattered cover, insides bulging with almost one year worth of art, words, expression, tassels dangling like familiar jewelry, pages pliable, worn and loved… and now, witnessed by the garden, summer sunlight and you.
