(The picture isn’t great but neither is the page).
Last night, I couldn’t sleep and my mind was all over the place, so I searched out my old art journal and attempted to create something. It’s rushed and very much unfinished but I don’t think I’ll ever finish it. I just needed get my thoughts down on paper. I am really struggling lately, 10/11/15.
This journal is one of the best presents I’ve ever been given. Whenever you can’t sleep, you can just flip to a random page and it’ll ask you a question or tell you to write about something, and you can just write whatever comes into your head. It’s brilliant. When you wake up the next day and read it back, it can be surprising.
Oh, and it’s got quotes in it too, which is always great.
It’s the perfect gift for any aspiring writer or frustrated insomniac - or any combination of the two.
The Wall Street Journal commissioned Rachael Saunders to illustrate a recent article about the benefits of drinking special cow’s milk. Drinking cow’s milk produced at night may be a treatment for anxiety and insomnia, suggests an animal study in the Journal of Medicinal Food. Rachael created a lovely illustration in her playful friendly style.
