Sources of inspiration

I started journaling not knowing what I was doing but wanting to draw the things around me that I loved. There are a growing number of books about journaling but the one that tops my list as the most amazing inspiration is Hannah Hinchman’s A Trail through Leaves; The Journal as a Path to Place.
