This month I am doing three things: Art Every Day Month, National Nonstop Journaling Month and National Blog Post Month. I may have mentioned it before.
I am doing OK with the blogging, making it here to post every day so far. My art is coming along, but much more slowly. I started a piece three days ago that I am still working on. I get so inspired by the art journals that I am seeing that I run to do something, and then realize that I have no idea what to do. I am principally a words gal; drawing is just not up my alley – at least not yet.
I write about the minutiae of my day, how the cats are, my struggles with pain, or food, or my kids. The notion of writing one sentence on a page, that I then color in, seems foreign. I see all the fuss going on in the blogosphere about what I should be doing to popularize this blog, and I just cannot do it. This is about me, my struggles as a soon-to-be-59 year old Christian woman. I guess all I can hope is that there will be others out there who will be relieved to know that they are not alone, that someone is sharing a similar struggle.
You are not alone. Be brave. Even if things don’t get better, you have companions. Love, me
