Today's task was: Add a magazine clipping on a subject important to you.
Health warning: Might be on the heavy side.
I was in trouble...I don't really buy or read newspapers any more. I only subscribe to one magazine, but don't want to cut into it (Permaculture). I thought that there must be a newspaper or a magazine kicking around somewhere, I do occasionally buy them. I then found some Quaker journals and newsletters, so took an article out of them. I actually wanted to post an article about the impossibility of the current use of resources/financial models. Of course I could not find any. This little article caught my eye and I decided to use it. Although I don't personally involve myself in prison reform, I do think there is a lot to improve. This is an example of an organisation doing it in a small way - human way with understanding and without judgement. (They are in Belfast).
The picture is a portrait of Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845), a well known prison reformer and a Quaker. It was not a part of the original article. You might not care reading it, but if you read a bit, please read the quote from a young lady, who was prisoner herself, it's the last picture.

Hope you have a nice Monday! As you see, the article is glued on a colourful background, that's my efforts for today's journal. I did like to play with the colours...
