I journal visually when words feel inadequate or trite … or when I am depressed or in physical pain or emotional overload; or when I simply must do something different to “reboot” an ordinary day.

If you would like to share your Wordless Art on Wednesday — or any day that works for you — I would enjoy seeing your post, Braveheart. Use the hashtag on Instagram or post a link and a comment with this post. Here is a link to my Wordless Art posts.
