My take on week 1 ... below is a list of supplies used on both left and right pages. To explain the broken pencil image on the right page: This was illustrated by Lucille Clerc, whose image shows how a pencil that is broken and then sharpened to form two more pencils that are ready to keep drawing as opposed to staying broken. It’s symbolic of the resolve of every artist and writer who use their talents to express their thoughts and feelings.

Journaling left side: What an exciting game, to watch the Cowboys come back and win against Detroit Lions after being behind 14 points in the first half! Tim used that time to work on his Blue Stars stuff and put away some of our Christmas decorations. DeLisa returned to work after a nice holiday break, and it was good to talk with everyone again at the office. We had a mishap in the guest bathroom, where we noticed a sink plumbing leak, which ruined our new cabinets. The plumber came by and fixed the leak, and we will be calling the insurance company soon. GRRR!

Journaling right side: Just a couple of thoughts on the Paris terrorist attack ... We refuse to be silenced, and we will exercise free speech even stronger than before. It is barbaric to murder civilians over cartoons, and yet that is exactly what happened in Paris. Our answer is that we will not cave in to radicals, and we will defend our basic human right to free expression.

Thanks for looking!
