Ain't No Ninny

Where Creativity and Everyday Life Collide



Courage is one of those loaded words.  We often speak of it loosely, as in “I had the courage to go to the gym this morning even though I’m still sore from my last workout”.  Uh, no.  That would be determination or discipline. On the other hand, we normally think of courage in terms of facing a dangerous situation such as that demonstrated by soldiers on the battle lines. But courage is no less honorable in situations where grave danger is not apparent. Sometimes courage is quiet, held within, unseen by others.

That is what my newest art journal entry addresses:  courage to be yourself, to show your own true colors to the world, to sing your own song.


(Journal 52, Week 24, “Courage”. Created using acrylics, stencils, stamps, ink.)

I write poetry and fiction; create doodle art; do genealogical research; take photographs of the world around me; think about odd things; hike the red rocks; and obsess on food.

  1. I agree…those silent courageous moments from within are sometimes the hardest ones to face. Good post! And it is a Beautiful Art Journal page!
