More from the journal

In the past month I've been trying to do three drawings
in my three daily pages of journals.  Although the drawings
improve as I drink my morning coffee, I am not a
morning person, so they are far from perfect.  But perfect
isn't the goal anyway, so they make me happy.

The drawing today is from a little photo in our kitchen of
me reading to my sons -- Christopher and Sam, when Sam was
a baby.  I liked the serious look on my face.  That is a
wonderful pleasure -- reading to children.

As usual it's a busy weekend.

Have a loving your life day.
