"There is a reason and there is a meaning...you will know in time, but time itself will choose the moment" - Kent Nerburn
I love this quote, which I had found while re-reading the journals of Sabrina Ward Harrison - have you ever heard of this artist?  I discovered her years ago, don't remember how, but I love her raw, honest take on collage and journaling.  I think she does some thought-provoking pieces that include photography, painting and words - as well as her mess, thrilling journals!
Ahhhhh, the power of writing and keeping a journal.   When I worked in my previous medium of mixed media/collage I found myself ALWAYS resorting back to my journals for thoughts and inspiration....NOW that my art is more landscape based, I find myself day-dreaming, looking out the window, or doing more walks, hikes and horse rides...solely for the solitude, the fresh air and the inspiration.  Oh, maybe the exercise, too, I guess the list could go on and on...
My journals, however, continue to remain VERY important to me, I find myself jotting quick thoughts, cutting and pasting pictures and ideas and re-reading these over and over again... they are a constant in my life...and there are many!
Take a moment to jot in your journal today!
