Do You Journal?

In the midst of all things on my November ToDo’s list, I’m still writing my morning pages in my journal – at least 3 handwritten desk w gilded 8pages.  Why?

It’s my creative net to:

  • Capture Ideas of the moment to pursue later.  The pen is my best memory.
  • Give form to my dreams and ponder how to give them wings
  • Brainstorm solutions to problems
  • Write a poem, or essay or capture a character for later extemporization.

It’s my friend to:

  • Give voice to things best kept to myself knowing the confidence will go no further.
  • Give thanks for what I have without sounding maudlin.
  • Cry over losses, and rejoice of triumphs
  • And so much more.

Do you keep a journal?

Does your horoscope ever hit the nail the head? Mine did today.

Pisces: 1/2/12
“You may grow tired with the thought of returning to the daily grind and want to retreat into your own private space instead. Even if you need to be around others now, you’re still likely to feel a bit withdrawn. Fortunately, this isn’t a problem because you can still do your job while letting your imagination wander. Just continue to do your work while keeping your personal thoughts to yourself. “

This one was written for me.  I’ve gotten accustomed to the rhythm of my life at home over the holidays.  I like the commute from the kitchen with coffee in hand to my sunny studio/office with the big sunny windows, Jazmine purring an arm’s reach away on the corner of my desk, my music streaming in the background.
