“The journals are a way of finding out where I really am…They are not dependant on the muse…They sort of make me feel that the fabric of my life has a meaning. What often seems fairly meaningless, like weeding a patch in the garden, when I write it into the journal, it sort of becomes something else.” – May Sarton
One of many of May Sarton’s quotes about keeping journals. She’s so right.
|Some of my old journals|
This has also been my experience. Insignificant, mundane things take on a new life as something significant when I write about it in my journal.
