September Lessons (part 6)

Several new lessons for today.  On the 19th, we went to a lovely wedding, and I found that I really enjoyed being back in Church. I am a faith-filled person, and I love being in church.  But I continue to be unhappy with the Catholic Church.  On the other hand, being Catholic is not something that I can simply cast away. So, I continue to mull things over, and it was nice to simply enjoy being back in Church.
On the 20th & 21st, I considered regrets in accordance with the prompts from LSNE and journaled a simple regret that I wanted to record and a lesson I learned from regretting photos I didn't take. Regrets are funny . . . the big things I regret not doing generally put me in a place where I was really happy.  So, I'm not sure I really regret it.  There's an art journal page simmering around in me about regrets. Stay tuned.
On the 22nd, the prompt was about why you are able to learn in September. I'm feeling very productive these days. I think I've been living a philosophy that Jack London captured in the quote I featured: "You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club." I'll be art journaling that quote, too!
Just when I thought I was not getting much out of this class, I reread my pages and realized how happy I was to be taking this particular journey and to be preserving these lessons.  The sum is bigger than the parts. Are you sticking with LSNE?

Unfortunately, no ... and I feel quite cross with myself about it. I really love my little book from last year but this year has been topsy-turvy to say the least and this project has suffered because of that.
I'm looking forward to the art journal pages to come :-)

Yes, I'm definitely sticking with it - only a few more days to go now. I think what gave me the motivation was thinking about how much I love my completed JYC album from last year.

I regret not being any good at sport, which is a slightly different thing lol

The sum is definately bigger than the parts....I always think that about JYC as well......though your 'parts' are great!
I'm only doing this one 'part-time'....but still love that there's a permanent record on my blog.

They are all beautiful but the last one is my favorite. What a great quote!

I finished two more pages today, and have a couple more to do. Like always, it's been an off and on event for me. I love that last quote--how true!
