Along with writing in the notebooks, I did a lot of drawing, sketching, and doodling. When I had a dream with a particularly vivid image, I would sketch it in the journal along with recording the dream. I also expressed my daytime thoughts with images at times when I ran out of words. Most of the drawings are regular ballpoint pen, but I used all sorts of materials. For a while I got serious about drawing and have twelve notebooks from 1989 to 1993 filled with copy drawings. I would tape a picture on one page, then sketch it on the facing page. I also have ten notebooks from 1995 where I sat in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, LACMA, sketching Kandinsky Improvisations and their permanent collection of Asian deities and Christian icons.
