hello! i photographed my entire travel journal this week. i'll be posting the whole thing in the next week. the full monty. if i wasn't moonlighting by day as a monkey whisperer i might be more productive. i might have wrapped things up by now.
but well…i haven't.
you're nice. you don't care. do you?
i'm reading 2 journals of may sarton. one of her 70th year and the other, her 80th. i love toggling back and forth between the 2.
nearly every day after school i come home to write in my journal on the back patio. moments of solitude i need after a day crowded with jabbering little people.
and then i immerse myself in reading the other journals. there are so many good passages i've marked to share. so many good words to swallow and digest.
"…but the real happiness yesterday had nothing to do with giving or buying anything but came from solitude, an unhurried day, the silence unbroken except fo the pheasant's cry. even the ocean, silky blue and absolutely calm, was silent."
-At Seventy: A Journal by May Sarton
Did I miss the post of the video??? Been anxiously waiting to see it in all its glory…will pop over to the class blog in case it is there first 😉
May Sarton was a wonderful writer and journal keeper, and a great inspiration to me. Thanks for sharing her and you.

Worry not! The wait just sharpens the appetite!
Lovely, lovely pages! Thank you for sharing.
I too love May Sarton and read several at the beginning of this year. Even though there are some photos … I wonder what she would have added to a visual journal.
Finished my homework early so I could google May Sarton. I was curious as to why I have never heard of her as my ward is full of accomplished readers, from the classics to the obscure, then I read her biography. I was brought up LDS, believe(d) one should never question ones faith, but time again I seem to have more and more questions.

I read all or most of May Sarton’s journals several years ago, too. Stick to the journals…in the bio you see a completely different face of her, and it turned me off her! But the journals were wonderful.
BUT, they’re *nothing* like your journals! Have a wonderful weekend.

Love your journals; love the writings of May Sarton. Have a lovely Friday! 🙂
Lovely, wonderful — and inspiring!

Hooked on May as well. She did so much for women in the writing department. Your journal evokes longing … not sure for what … something more. Beautiful. Your little monkey minds are so lucky .. little do they know. D

We can wait in happy anticipation – it’s like Christmas!

wow, those pages are out of this world wonderful and interesting. Wish I could hold it. A day working with little monkeys is a day filled with noise, confusion and neat moments. It tires you to the bone but just think of what you give them, acceptance and love, way to go teacher of little craft monkeys. Enjoy the quiet moments.
Gasp! I love it I love it I love it! xo K
Love Ms. Sarton and Ms. Moss.
You brighten my spirit.

Such stunning serene pages… breathtaking.

I am looking forward to seeing all your gorgeous pages, I see you shared a very fine sampling in this post. I am all a flutter and tingles in anticipation. Your journal pages always excite a creative riot…not that I need any encouragement. My art table has not seen the light of day in the past 2 weeks, it’s covered as is every other surface within arm’s reach. Paints, fabrics, inks, papers, glue, it’s all getting it’s turn in the limelight. Switching gears; May’s books are always wonderful reads. She is quite remarkable in her musings. I’m looking forward to snippets.
I knew if I checked here after finishing my homework you would have just what I needed to dream the night away. Working on a Holocaust journal for Lit. it is weighing heavy on my heart and taking its toll on my brain. Thanks for the wonderful pictures and the loveliest of words.
