Reason 23 for Writing Regularly in a Journal or Notebook

Reason 23 for writing in a journal: It’s a good outlet for the drivelisdom* (pronounced: drih-vuhl-IZ-dum) slushing around in your head.  Also, you can go back to it later and say, “Gosh what drivel,” or “Gosh, how wise.”  Here’s a piece of my own ramblings from yesterday morning, and honestly, if nothing else, a small spiral notebook and a pen are so much less expensive than a session with a shrink.

There’s no such thing as only three years, just three days, or three mere minutes.  Every moment, day and year is filled with meaning and possibility.  Life is a beverage, joy and sorrow mixed in, a potent, heady brew.  And every year moves you and your far-removed dear ones farther along such separate paths whose blessed crossings are mere, happy blinks.

*drivelisdom = drivel + wisdom

About literarylee

I sling words for a living. Always have, always will. Some have been interesting and fun; most not. These days, I write the fun words early in the morning before the adults are up and make me eat my Cream of Wheat.
