Lammas Thoughts: Looking Back on our Achievements
Looking back over lockdown, I realise I dwelled an awful lot on what we weren't able to do, without seeing what we were able to. Comparing my journalling activity I found I'd made about 60 entries in my Book of Shadows - that's whole and double pages of pasted in text and photos - since the start of lockdown, against only about 10 for the same period last year.
The entries are a general mix of events happening currently and formative reminiscences going back through to early childhood. It just goes to show that no amount of lockdown restriction can keep us witches from finding ways to practise our craft, and I think journals are probably one of our most important tools to look back on, learn from and be inspired by. I've been taking photos of my books and a couple are here.
I think Jane's Book of Shadows puts mine to shame, as I just have a collection of papers in rather plain files and a stack of notebooks that aren't nearly as attractive as those in the pictures!
