Return to Immediate Gratification

For my instant creative gratification meter, I need quick and fast satisfaction. I attribute my immediacies to my American upbringing…Lol!

I journal daily and it takes a lot less time to create something in my journal than it does to create something large (which my art tends to be). I can go to my journal, doodle, sketch, collage and write, to create a page and voila! It’s therapeutic, immediate and I don’t need retail therapy!

Have an amazing weekend as we all go forth courageously in a world where good things are always possible. In peace to you and yours.

  4. Thanks Kerry! The shirt was cut off from one of my magazine pages. I don't know from where, but I'd love to have that shirt, too! :)
