Journal page

The thing about a visual journal is that it involves a part of my brain that does not use words. I keep a written, private journal as well, and it is all words. In that journal I tend to record, reflect, ruminate. It is more of a cerebral thing. Does that make sense?

My visual journal lets my left brain take a vacation - well, not really, it always has input - but it is really right brain time. Colors. Shapes. Reminds me of pre-school years. Before learning that those squiggly shapes were the alphabet. I find playing with color and shapes soothing.

Pen and watercolors. White crayola resist.
Have you played with color and shape lately?
