This publication makes me particularly happy because "The Journal Project" and the Exhibit that grew out of it seemed like such risky work. It was risky to study self in this way. It was risky to fool with arts-based research. It was risky to consider exhibiting--going really public in the way that I did.
My thanks to Norman Denzin and the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry (ICQI) for believing in my work and supporting me, as a qualitative researcher, to try the risky. I was able to push my personal boundaries as a qualitative researcher. I have come through the experience better able to engage with many qualitative research topics from a new and more informed perspective.
