A Beautiful Word
Is writing becoming a lost art? I really hope not.
I have always been what I call a “thought” journaler. I tend to not journal feelings because I don’t want my feelings to be found.
But I love to journal thoughts, observations, ideas and dreams.
I love to journal quotes, books to read, books I’ve read and things I want to do.
I have a journal that travels everywhere with me. It’s always in my purse and I pull it out many times throughout the day to capture a thought or an idea.
I have stacks of journals, both filled and unfilled. Filled journals that I refer to often. Unfilled journals that are waiting for their time to live in my purse and travel where I travel. I love to find a unique journal that captures my style and personality. In fact, I’m rather finicky about the type of journals I write in. Journals that have been gifted to me with a personal note from someone close to me are even more special.
I’ve often wondered if the art of the hand-written word would go away with technology, but somehow I don’t think so. My computer travels with me just as much, and truth be told I spend more hours on my computer, but my journal is reserved for the very special thoughts and ideas.
With all the beauties of technology, I really don’t think my journal will go away. There is just something sacred about a hand-written thought.
What about you? To journal or not to journal?
