I think everyone should find a way to document moments—big and small, good and bad—whether through photography, writing drawing, or all of the above. I have always kept a combination of a journal and sketchbook in order to keep hold of my time, as I think it’s the perfect way to combine a creative practice with memory keeping. Not only does it allow me to look back on how my artistic skills and expression have changed, as I would see in a simple sketchbook, but I can also look back on how I spend my days, what I think about and what I choose to highlight. It’s also a gift for my husband and kids, as I am documenting our lives together. It has layered benefits and is something anyone can do.
