Sketch Journals

It’s important to create every day.  Do you cut flowers to arrange from your garden?  Do you invent menus from food on hand?  Do you put together smashing outfits enhanced by accessories?  I’ve been keeping sketch journals.  My most recent journal recorded my summer travels.  I completed the final page today.  The entry is from Sept 27th, when we experienced a once-in-a-lifetime super eclipse.  Four of us met at Pulpit Rock at the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Montrose, CO to experience it.  The encounter was too amazing to describe- beyond words.  Even a photograph couldn’t do it justice.  That is one reason why I enjoy sketch journaling.

I have been a lifelong rider and horse lover. I got my first "horse" at a yard sale; it was a pony actually. It was sometime in the early 60's. I was in 3rd or 4th grade. The pony was perhaps $10. My sister, brother, and I pooled our money and led him home. At the time my parents were traveling, and my Uncle Bill promptly made us return it. (stay tuned...more to come...)

  1. I enjoyed watching the Blood Moon with Cheri and Kurt. I’ve looked forward to seeing her water color interpretation of the gorgeous view that we enjoyed that night. Well done, Cheri!
