How in the world do those that don't journal find anything out?
I need this practice to know what's what in my life, to access those inner secret parts that don't easily rise to the surface.
By playing in a journal, all kinds of things are revealed.
and I do find that if I focus too much on making a "pretty page" I lose some of this discovery.
So make a mess, play around, experiment, try this and that and this again.
You will be surprised what treasures you fine in the ruins.
"Some men go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish that they are after." --Henry David Thoreau
