Dear Fellow Journalers,
Do you live with curiosity?
When I was in college, one of my courses was Philosophy. Sometimes I found the concepts hard to understand, but I knew that I didn’t just exist (on earth) I also existed in my mind. I didn’t just drift through life, letting things/events happen to me. I had a right , my professor insisted, to decide how I would exist. I had to decide to be open to the world I lived in.
Being open can be hard. Being closed off from new ideas is comfortable, easy and not full of challenges. Not exactly the way we creative persons want to live. To be open is to live with a sense of curiosity, where every moment is an opportunity for learning, seeing things both as they really are and how they could be. Being open means that I expand my mind to new medias of expression in drawing, prose, poetry, charts, personal growth, inner child work and my potential.
One of my new resolutions is to take more classes from crafting “experts” both via the traditional and on-line u-tube formats.
I decided to use sketches in my journal and experiment with color. I also added my thoughts about the ideas and my feelings about my progress.
‘Til next time,
