[fullness] loyalty to the inner vision

August theme: Dated Chronicling & Mark-Making + Establishing a Morning Ritual [my journal-planner title page with quarter moon art]

This week ushers in the month of August as I continue to experience my dailies with the intention of fullness + making note of sign-posts on the way to Next.

August is month two of the third quarter of 2017; I envision new endeavors in quarters — 3-months at a time (January-March, April-June, etc.) Here is a breakdown of how I see my personal quarter sessions:

my art: doing what I don’t have to do {to discover & live more of what I want}

page view: Syllabus BY Lynda Barry

So one of the things about art is, it offers a safe place for you to have quite extreme and rather dangerous feelings. And the reason you can do that is because you know you can switch it off. So art has a kind of role there as a simulator. -Brian Eno

[April Pages] grounding your-self in color & possibility

Chunky Stabilo color pencils are pigment-rich and offer broad strokes of bold color.

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all.
