travel and more

I had the most wonderful amount of travel the last few months, thanks to unemployment, job options elsewhere, kind relatives, and just luck.
I seem to need to move.
Stagnation comes quickly and for me, a new place, a new adventure, a new dream, and even just new books and magazines and films are necessary to keep my mind moving forward and not feeling dulled and lifeless.
I have a new idea for a project done while on a train. Yesterday we went into the city for some back to school shopping and the train plan just showed up in my mind.
I am learning in life to make what I love to do meld with what I need to do for my work.
Following the bliss, is one way to look at it.
My journal helps me with all this.
How does your journal help you?

"A creative train of thought is set off by: the unexpected, the unknown, the accidental, the disorderly, the absurd, the impossible." --Asger Jorn


  1. I have been wanting to take a trip for a while now. Work has become very tedious, and a vacation would be very refreshing.

  2. My journal helps me to go deeper within and know myself better. Working in it helps me to feel transported, beyond my physical limitations.
