I made myself read again the first chapters of Ganim & Fox's Visual Journaling ~ Going Deeper than Words. Along with the other self-imposed personal projects, I felt it was time to really work with the visual journaling exercises ~ maybe learn something this time 'round.
This is yesterday's image . . .
However, something prompted me to look at other journal entries I'd done; almost all of them were done at the lakeside beach amidst the cacophony of children swimming and building sand castles or counting the bobbing heads of those I was responsible for that day . . .
I am surprised I'd done so many without the benefits of doing all the exercises from the book. My very first entry was in 2000. Between two 11" x 14" sketchbooks, I have 10 years of visual journal entries. Not consistent, but a great many that carry deeper meanings than I ever realized at the time.
There were even a couple of these . . .
