The 1000 Journal Project documents the travels of 1000 journals that are written in then passed on to someone else. These journals are difficult to find. Another site 1001 Journals. Based on the premise that we are all artists, the journals stand testiment to our creativity.

If you ask a kindergarten class how many of them are artists, they'll all raise their hands. Ask the same question of 6th graders, and maybe one third will respond. Ask high school grads, and few will admit to it. (explained in Orbiting the Giant Hairball)

What happens to us growing up? We begin to fear criticism, and tend to keep our creativity to ourselves. Many people keep journals, of writing or sketching, but not many share them with people. 1000 Journals is for you. For everyone.
