I’ve been a little preoccupied recently. I think I have been distracting myself by distracting myself. It’s never as simple as that, but it’s often easier to ignore things… in the short term. I tried to deal with the giant elephant in the room by looking for a solution out the window. When the view outside wasn’t clear it made things even worse. Allegedly, elephants never forget, well, they certainly don’t leave the room.
Still, I am back here now. The elephant is being dealt with, humanely, of course, and I have stopped looking out the window and elsewhere for solutions and quick fixes.
Wisdom from journal creation
I have been making some junk, travel journals (soon to be on pLAnarchy) and the signature creation gave me a little insight. Each signature is made up of several sheets, folded and then stitched together. By itself one sheet does make a journal, it’s just a piece of paper.
It is only by taking each sheet, folding and sewing, to make a signature, then grouping these signatures together, can a journal be made.
I had stopped thinking of the process. There are no shortcuts.
