So that last post was a little heavy. After I clicked publish, though, I really felt as if a weight had been lifted. Which was, in so many ways, a huge relief. I'm never quite sure how much to share about the stuff happening behind the scenes and I always feel a little shaky before hitting that publish button, but I'm really glad to have opened up.
You were so generous with your comments. Thank you so much for that. Later today I'll be stopping by to post a reply to each one. (Now that I'm not feeling quite so raw.)
But for now, let's move forward, shall we? A new week, new challenges to meet, a new post, and a new journal page. (Number 50! And it includes a timely new prompt about moving forward!)
The next book I'd like to read: Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative, by Ken Robinson. (Actually, it's Sir Ken Robinson, if I'm not mistaken.)
The next thing I'd like to learn: How to make the most of my DSLR camera. I've tried to teach myself via how-to books borrowed from the library and I've reached a very basic level of understanding, but I can't seem to get any further. I think it's just one of those skills that requires a teacher who can show me what to do and how to improve. To that end, I'm taking a short course on the subject in September.
The next place I'd like to visit: The east coast of Canada. Luckily, I'll be headed there very soon. :)
The next goal I'd like to accomplish: The completion of Pocket Journal no. 2!
As always, here is a look at today's journal page in its near entirety:
How are you moving forward? I'd love to know!
P.S. Due to a lovely little family road trip in my immediate future, I'll be offline from the end of this week until early August. I'll be closing the shop shortly and setting my email to auto-reply in an attempt (possibly futile) to conduct a healthy disconnect from all manner of screens and related technology. (Twitch.) Looking forward to catching up soon!
