My first Sketchbox. This way I get some art supplies every month but don’t have to go spend hundreds of dollars getting all kinds of different mediums at Michaels.

I have technical artistic skills but I do not have a creative mind, so have always struggled to come up with ideas or implement things I can’t see. It’s been a long time - almost 10 years - since I’ve dedicated any part of my brain to art. No time like the present, now. I ordered a new mixed media sketchbook to try and start an art journal, like I did in high school. I hated it then because I just did it for the assignments. Now I’m going to do it for myself. It’s practice for starting to let go of my need for perfection from myself, too.

This is the second lip balm I have ever completely used up (as opposed to losing it). Got it on my 22nd birthday, April 6, 2016, when he and I were on our mountain trip. I had lost my other lip balm and could not go without so we wandered all through the little shops trying to find something. Landed with this Dionis Sweet Berry. Funny how some things just stick with you.

Forgetfulness is a devastating disorder. We modern humans have forgotten our roots, we have forgotten our gods, and we are now busily trying to forget our morals. We feel freer and less constrained the more we forget, unaware that each additional loss of memory distances us further from our true identities. We construct for ourselves false personalities derived from the veneer of addictions to our sensory indulgences, defining freedom as unlimited gratification, forgetting that all individuality is conditional. Cut off from communication with our internal mother we are severed from our source of compassion, and we forget how to empathize with other living creatures.
