as i sit with glassy eyes in the cafe of georgetown’s barnes and noble, i wanted to share my week in review. would love to hear yours!

despite a list of completed tasks and pleasant exchanges, i’m feeling less than full at the moment. healing feels like a full-time job that has me heading to acupuncture, physical therapy, doctor appointments, and needing help carrying basics like a laptop and planner pad.

as a blogger since 2004, i’ve only begun looking at other blogs recently. i’m blown away by the beauty and creativity that shines forth. funny how looking at other people’s greatness can leave me inspired and . . . feeling sub par. anyone else struggle with this dilemma?

for example, i’m totally into visual journaling now and so inspired by lisa sonora beam and hope wallace karney‘s journals. OMG. gorgeous.

a friend passed along the above image of a self-improvement section where she saw my book. it’s a good reminder that we are *all* works in progress. constantly given the opportunity to grow and repot ourselves as we outgrow – even if our journals aren’t *yet* works of art.
