I finished this journal today. It's full to bursting.
I'm pleased to say I've tackled 'infinity' and 'eternity'
and am not sure I can best that. I'm not sure I want to.
There is always another journal to be constructed and created, it's just a matter of figuring out another new way to do it. That is the fun part for me, reworking, revamping, remodeling what a journal can be. It's all about the challenge to me. It goes without saying that I also enjoy the process of creating the pages, bringing them to life, tossing bits of my life down for further contemplation, excavation and sometimes just to get them out into the open and into the light of day. Journaling is like opening a window in a dark, dusty attic, letting in some fresh air, let the wind blow through and move the cobwebs that sometime collect there. Nothing in my journals is too precious to be given a page. I don't edit what goes on them, what you see is what you get. Truth and honesty with the hope that they will be respected for what they are, and if what is there is not always understood by the masses, I know what it all means and if some pages seem a mystery, well that is ok. Life is not always neat and tidy, some things are gonna be messy and I'll be the first to admit my life is often a bit of a mess. These journals hold a great many 'messes' a few secrets, some passion, laced with a wee bit of heart-ache and a few shout outs too.
I just finished getting all of the pages photographed, cataloged and into folders so I can find them easily when I begin to share them here very soon.
