last page of my latest journal

When I kept a diary in middle school, then high school, then college, it was just all words.
Lots and lots of words.
I kept a separate sketchbook with drawings, and all my school notebooks were covered in doodles.
It took me about 20 years to finally figure out how to put these things together, now everyone seems to know about visual journaling.
That's how ideas infiltrate through humanity - and it happens so fast now.
One person thinks of something, or ten people do all at the same time, they experiment, share it, it spreads, then everyone seems to know about it.
Visual journaling was unknown ten years ago, now it practically has it's own section in the bookstore.

My latest journal is now full, so I wrote this note on the last page.
In the new journal I am working differently. . . . .
pages to come.

  1. I am a journal/artist - many years. (I am 70) and I too have found drawing/coloring/writing my favored mode of expression. Now I am using a blog - pretty new - to see how I might carry my journey forward from here. Mine is a somewhat unconventional form, and I am looking for some feedback from fellow journal artists. I would appreciate any advice, comments you may have. Thank you.
