It is done!

Time is up on the Sketchbook Project and it has to be postmarked tomorrow in order to get into the the Brooklyn Library tour and archives. Even though I didn't complete the book, I did about 21 images. Considering I was not going to do it at all, I consider that a pretty good effort. It was fun and having a deadline was great. So here they are:

The Cover

The Title Page and quote by Walker Percy

Page 2 Middle Escence - The second adolescence!

Page 3 - One of my favorite quotes from Solzhenytsin

Page 4 - A new found hobby...the zendoodle!

Page 5 - My house having burned to the ground...

Page 6 - Journal break

Page 7 - This one was a favorite. The image worked well and the quotes are excellent.

Page 8 - Nice quote from Dan Eldon.

Page 9 - Empty Your Anger Closet...I like how this came together.

Page 10 - Metaphors

Page 11 - I always like this photo of an elderly couple and then comparing it to the romantic love we associate with marriage.

Page 12 - We always talk about the inner child what about the adult?

Page 13 - Whether it the Gods or ourselves, we can't seem to avoid the drama.

Page 14 - A mindless piece of practice.

Page 15 - Herman Melville quote on failure.

Page 16 - Just images.

Page 17 - Over estimating our power. I shot the birds on a wire outside of work one day.

Page 18 - Had to do one of the kids. Would have like to spend more time with this one. I have always thought about the gift a child brings us when they make us parents.

Page 19 - Welcoming the New Year.

Page 20 - Celebrate your unique abilities.

Page 21 - I was touched by President Obama's speech on January 12th.
