For the journal prompt, Life...with a history, I used a Prismacolor gray pencil to write rambling thoughts at the bottom of the page. When I write like that, I don't make it legible. In fact, by next week, I'll forget what I wrote and certainly won't be able to read it! But history is a fleeting thing, as we all know!
You can see the writing better in person than in the picture, but still I felt it needed more, so I stenciled a typewriter over it. Seems like most of my jobs over the past decades involve typing, so it is appropriate, as a part of my history.
