Been blogging forever it seems

Journals from our bicycle tour of Western Europe in the 70's. I was pretty faithful about writing (and sketching). The above is from Holland. I wonder why I felt it was so necessary to keep track of it. The newness of it. My reaction. A Spanish circle dance in jeans. Journals and art help me to understand the mystery of who I really really am.

Art tells us who we are, how we feel. How can we ever move ahead if we don't have that knowledge?

Hi Judy,

do you know what it says in Dutch at the bottom of your last picture? Perhaps you know.
It says: all life insurances.
It goes so well with what you wrote on that piece of paper!
