The urge to criticize wasn’t as strong bc of how kind the professor was to herself. I found myself having fun with how weird it looked and joyful about some good spots in the drawings. An exercise in managing the urge to look as well having self compassion!
I love how this is a mix of art and science. It really shows a level of connection to the nature rather than just a study of it
1. What inspired you to begin nature journaling?
I am a forever learner and started birding march 2020 during quarantine. I realized while I like learning the science I really love the beauty and connection. I’m excited to mix my love of learning with my hobby of art
2. Now that you’ve heard from several other journalers about their processes, and had a peek at their journals, which ideas or approaches do you want to try?
I want to go with whatever feels right in the moment. Perhaps like the first one of having drawings and words in loose boxes
3. Do you have a different journaling idea, not mentioned here, that you’d like to share?
maybe adding how you felt that day. Adding what your human experience was being with the subjects
