    Default Another take on diaries and journals, from Lynda Barry

    Came across this tonight - while certainly not fp specific, there is an abundance of creative thought going on here and a very motivating catalyst for people who are visually oriented to chronicle their days.

    Lynda Barry’s Illustrated Field Guide to Keeping a Visual Diary and Cultivating a Capacity for Creative Observation

    "When Men differ in Opinion, both Sides ought equally to have the Advantage of being heard by the Publick;
    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."

    Enjoying this, I'm thinking my journal would turn into a cross between The Oatmeal and H.P. Lovecraft.

    Might be worth a shot...

    This is awesome. I tried art journaling and couldn't really get the hang of it. I think it's because my life is very dull and my brain hamsters don't really get on the wheel too often 🤣 I already draw my fellow comuters Teehee. Maybe I should give it another shot

    I am not much for journalling or haven't been. It always ends up with a lot of "maybe", "perhaps", and "I wonder" ... But with dumb stuff in between.

    I can see the value of just recording things happening like that. Hmm.

    Plus I have a lot of ink samples to try.

    What's there to lose?
