BUT I’M NOT A WRITER: HOW TO DO AN UN-JOURNAL
MY THERAPIST MADE ME DO IT
I can’t count the number of times I’ve been encouraged to write in a journal; probably hundreds of times from well meaning therapists and doctors. And I’ve purchased many, many journals: those with lines, those without; with bible verses and with witty sayings, with beautiful leather covers, and simple composition books. Yet, to no avail.
One day recently, however, I discovered a sketchbook in a plain brown cover with the most beautiful 90lb acid-free drawing and mixed-media paper. It looks like a novel, but delights my tactile senses of touching the paper. I’ve also discovered micron pens when I began to Zentangle to relieve stress. I never realized how senses-oriented I am. I love art, though I am no artist but I do have a minor in art history.
