I can’t remember what my carefully thought out goals for posting something several times a week even were, it’s been so long since I did it. Something about tagline generators and Wordless Wednesdays? (I’ll put clever links in when I feel like going back to that post and doing it, lol.)
I don’t think Sunday was one of my planned blogging days in any case. But just the same, here’s a wonderfully inspiring blog for you to go check out:
Seriously, go check it out, it’s hilarious, thought-provoking, and makes my hands itch for a pen and a paper.
One of my ultimate dreams is to create a scrapbook/journal/sketch book and write in it, draw in it, paste in it, until it’s full. As a writer, this is something you’d assume I’d done zillions of times over in my life, but the truth is, never once have I filled up an entire book. I think it’s called art journaling…oh, and in my case, sincere lack of self-discipline and general sticktoitness. I was looking at some of the lists on that to-do list site and realized that lists can be considered a form of art. We spend a lot of time writing our thoughts down on those lists, scribbling details in the margins or adding bullet points on the computer, and what is art other than the way we interpret a moment in time? A moment in time is what a basic list breaks down into – what we need to be doing in that moment, or want to be doing, or planned on doing. It’s art in scattered word form without the need for proper punctuation or a flow of thoughts and words or even the need to make sense to anyone else who sees it. It’s lawless, rule-less, it’s freedom. That makes it art.
Since my picture-a-day challenge is going so well (99% successful thus far, pictures to be added soon!) I feel I might be up to the challenge of art journaling. Maybe I could even combine the two challenges every so often and take pictures of my art journal!
On another blogging note, my bookmarks folder is starting to bulge and overflow with favorite sites that are dying to be added here. Maybe I can do that on…let’s see…I Forgot What I’m Supposed to Do Friday?!
