all truth is beautiful
This is the journal that I made for myself. I can’t wait to start this new journal. I’m almost done with my last one. I can’t believe it’s almost full. I love the feel of it, the worn edges, the crumpled pages, things sticking out the edges. But it is definitely time to move on to a new one.
The image that I used is not one of my photographs which is why this is for personal use. I use my personal photographs or drawings for my art work. But this image has been in my possession for a while now and I wanted to use it for my new journal.

I got that phrase from that book on tape on Vincent Van Gogh I listened to a while back. It has stayed with me. We tend to gloss over the truth because sometimes it is too much. Too harsh. Who wants to look at reality? But that statement almost admonishes us to find the beauty in truth, in reality, in what is sometimes is overlooked.
