I am plodding along on my art journal and, while it’s still a work in progress, I thought I’d share what I’ve completed so far.
This entry began around the time that New York passed the equal marriage bill. I thought that, since Jeff and I were married in New Paltz, NY in 2004 with several other gay and lesbian couples (for an update on that CLICK HERE), and my “journal” is to document personal growth and musings, that I would pay gratitude and respect to the brave men and women of New York’s political system in my journal.
As I said, my journal entry is far from complete, but there it is so far . . . (I know, the pic is blurry but you get the idea …)
Oh, here’s a snapshot from our New Paltz, NY wedding — (BTW this straight Unitarian minister [in the photo marrying Jeff, Evan & I as a family] was one of two who were arrested and thrown in jail after the weddings for marrying gay couples. It is the only time in the history of our country — even during the Jim Crow laws — that a religious was jailed for marrying a couple).
If you have the day off from work today, do something creative! Why not try your own hand at creating a simple art journal page to document what’s happening in your life! xoxom
