Jessie Nilo, Lisa Marten, and Dean Estes all contributed their wisdom and experience to the notes on these pages. They are so practical and so caring, for the artist and for how an artist can reach out and care and lead. The philosophy I caught from them is to invite the Holy Spirit in. Invite and include people to play. One of the things Jessie said is, “Give it away so more can play.” And I was cheering inside when Lisa said, “It’s all about relationships.”
This was a new way of taking notes, art journaling style, but I really liked it. I’m sure I will use it again. It was just the right length for a weekend conference, and it will help me keep better track of notes that are meaningful. I supposed it could be applied to all sorts of situations where people take notes. I even liked how some of the pages over-lappped and showed different views depending on if the flaps were open or closed. In my mind it integrated the speakers and the related themes of their talks.
