before my trip I got a moleskine journal book
this one is the small pocket sized one with plain paper
I have a problem with sketchbooks and journals
I have so many of them that only have the first 4 or 5 pages are sketched
... the rest is blank ...
I remember hearing as a mantra in drawing class:
"draw something every single day"
and then there's the "morning pages" (Julia Cameron: The Artist's Way):
"write 3 pages every morning"
what is my problem?
here is the one and only drawing I've done in 3 weeks:
I drew it on the plane over there
filled with thoughts and dreams of swimming with the sea turtles
(I did see one from atop a cliff - if the turtles don't feel like finding me and swimming with me - that's o.k. - I don't want to be demanding - it is their ocean home after all)
and as for filling up this journal
... whether it be words or art ...
I am not going to be kicking myself about someone else's so called mantra
