Benefits of writing in a journal.
I started writing in a journal about ten years ago. When I started, I was dealing with chronic anxiety. Anyone that has been in that boat can tell you; it isn’t something you row yourself out of easily. Stroke by stroke of the pen on paper, I spilled out negative thoughts. Over time, journaling helped me challenge those apprehensions. Finally, I was able to understand my fears and concerns. The parade of ruminations stayed on the page, and I was able to shift my thoughts over to the positive.
Since lifting that fog, I find joy in the practice of allowing my photography art to guide me into words and feelings. My mission is that these journal entries deepen your appreciation. Gratitude helped me find my balance. Wishing the same for you.

Visual metaphor in art: the “Elephant in the Room” contemporary abstract art print. Warning, this abstract photo is not for serious art collectors; quick wits and a sense of humor required.
For a myriad of reasons, I’ve struggled a lot this past week. When I have these times, which are completely human, I try to find an anchor to bring me back to something simple, something that reminds me of the little moments.
When I need some inspiration to pull me back to what matters, I flip open my images to look at art I’ve created and scroll them like a lot of people do with social media. I stopped at this image. Over and over, I kept coming back to “Blue Morphos and the Sun” I created as New Media Art. I love the way it feels sunny and warm and as though many happy thoughts are flittering around inside my head.
