Randy suggested that we might want to show each other what our journal looks like. I thought I'd take the suggestion and show you.
Journaling is very haphazard for me. It isn't really left up to chance but more disorderly than anything. I tend to journal wherever I am able so I keep the little spiralbound things around. I frequently raise questions in my journals and seldom answer the questions. I record thoughts but seldom complete them. I explore ideas but rarely put the finished thoughts in them. It has been that way for a very long time. The nice, navy blue journal turned out to be intimidating to me. There was something about its beauty that hindered my random thinking. I was given a beautiful journal the other night. It had wooden covers, scripture imprinted on the cover, and a leather (or leather-like) binding. It is beautiful but I have to wonder what its hopes are.
Okay, so you see the lined spirals, the sketch journal (which I love) and the beauty beneath them all (also one zebra rug). These accurately reflect my journaling life.
By the way, when I journaled most successfully (from college through 1995) I used a loose-leaf notebook. I gave me the freedom to add pages as I randomly scribbled on almost anything from napkins to envelopes to receipts…
Love that you guys have been sharing these posts and pics with us.
