MONDAY MONTAGE: Why blog?
I’ve been journaling since the 6th grade. And making scrapbooks and paper crafts since I was six years old.

This web-journal will be an extension of that tradition.

I want it to be topic focused, just like my personal journals. Instead of keeping a daily diary, for many years now I’ve been in the habit of numbering the pages in my fabric covered blank books. Then, as the days of my life unfold, I add notations, tape in clippings, make sketches, etc. These are organized by topics and themes related to the current issues and activities going on in my life. Each journal covers approx. 6-12 mos. Information retrieval is easier this way. But in all honesty I rarely refer to my “back issues” because I’m so involved in the present and planning projects for the future!

I envision my blog as a coffee bar squeezed into my tiny studio. A way to enlarge this room of my own, in a place where I can stimulate an exchange of ideas, projects and experiences. And toss my questions and concerns to friends, like P & N, who are listening. Listening with their mugs in one hand and making notes to share with me with their other hand.

Initially, I’ll publish a post just once a week. So please consider visiting me at least once a week! Voila! Welcome to MONDAY MONTAGE!
