My Journal Monday — Week 25

I think I am setting a new record.  How close can I get to midnight to post before it is “Tuesday” according to the clock?  I’ve been pretty busy the last week or so–trying to get well…again…and also trying to do a little art.  I had to go out of town most of the day […]

My Journal Monday–Week 20 and 29 Faces — Blog Challenge — No. 27 & Art It Friday – Show Your Face

Sunday Words & My Journal Monday–Week 7

Job 28:20-21 This is what is on my desk this morning in my journal and it is also getting posted to Art Every Day Month.  I have been so upset by the events that took place in Paris on Friday late afternoon/evening (US EST).  My feelings run deep and for numerous reasons–this platform is probably not […]
