JOURNEY DAYBOOK ADVENTURE

It's been really busy around here. Our son and grand-daughter were here for 10 days. We did a lot of driving, Disney World, visiting family, perusing antique and junk stores (a family addiction), enjoying the warm weather and water when it was near, swimming a couple of times, and just enjoying each others company.

Last year here in Cedar Key, I attended a class on keeping an illustrated journal with local artist Margaret Herrick. .... no, actually the class was at Fanning Springs and I wrote about it here. Last Friday, I joined her and several other journal keepers on their monthly Journey Daybook adventure at Rainbow Springs State Park.



This is my journal page from the day.... the heron is a photo from a brochure, and the dragon fly is the stamp that they put on your hand when you pay your admission.

Journey, contemplation, being present, and working alone are the process of Journey Daybook.
The Journey Daybook site is here and Margaret's beautiful work is here. Both sites are very inspiring and well worth a look.

Cedar Key seems to be a lovely place l...i have always wanted to make quick watercolors while i travel ...so much more vivid than photographs ...

The journal idea is really nice :)

Carole! Small world! I know Peggy, she's part of our journal-keepers group... I'll see her in June when our group gathers for the opening of our nature journal show at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History...

Lovely work from the day... and so nice to take the time...

Sethu, Sandy, Seema,and Sherrie, .... wow, this is the day for names starting with "S". Thank you all for your comments.

Sethu and Seema, I hope you will be encouraged to keep a journal.

Sandy, its always great to discover another journal keeper isn't it.

and Sherrie, small world indeed. I had just stopped by Peggy's on the way to the library to tell her good bye as we're leaving here tomorrow. She is so looking forward to her trip west and was talking about it this morning.
