A Year of Discovering Week 1: Beginnings

A Year of Discovering

“A Year of Discovering” is my 52 week journaling project. 1 prompt every week for a whole year. I intend to be real and truthful in my pages. I hope to learn more about myself, my art and the world around me as this project unfolds.
See the archives for all my prompts and journal pages for a whole year.

The prompt for week 1 was “Beginning”.
I thought it was appropriate not only for beginning a whole new journal and project but because of the beginning that awaits me in a few weeks. Moving.

Here’s what I wrote on the page:
“This same time last year I was sitting at home, preparing to embark on what was to be a great adventure.
It was supposed to be the start of my future, my new life.
Now I sit, after deciding to abandon that future and once again start anew. A new state, a new home, new adventures.”

    I think that’s the great thing about art; in a digital age it keeps us grounded. It keeps us gripping pencils and paintbrushes. This journal project holds promise of being a great vessel of self discovery.
