student notes 4: visual images

Inserting visual images can enhance a commonplace book, but I would be careful to use them in a supporting role.  I would like this book to focus on writing–both the written passages you include and the reflections you yourself write.  When occasional images help you make a connection or engage a reader, consider them.  Remember, though, to honor the tradition by aiming your “pen” at words.  To phrase this note differently, no one should feel sheepish about a commonplace book that has no visual images.  Let your words make pictures.
