This summer, I had a travel project to do for class. I had a few ideas of what I wanted to do – some more feasible than others (Italy, Africa..not so much!) But when my world took an unexpected turn, my project turned out to be something more personal than I ever expected. I managed to capture images on my trip to Texas, and they came together well in the end. This is something I’m really glad I put the effort into. I like to think my mom helped me finish up this semester. She must still be here with me, because I’m not sure I could have made it this far otherwise.
I also have a journal that goes with my travel book. However, it’s not something I think I will put up on the internet. Not so much because I mind people knowing what I wrote, but because there was something therapeutic about actually writing my thoughts in a journal rather than typing them to a blog. Maybe it’s something that my kids or grandkids down the road will find, and just maybe they will get to know a piece of me through that. And really, that’s a much nicer thought than them googling a blog sometime in the future.
But, the book is up to share :] Check out the preview below, be sure to view it full screen, and enjoy!
