One Month – 21 Sentences

Calendar Journal - Month 1

This idea is a winner.  After one month of keeping a calendar journal, I have collected 21 sentences describing events, ideas and memories from over the last 31 days.  Though only one month has passed, I’m surprised to discover I enjoy reminiscing back.  How much fun will it be after six months?  One year?  Here are some samples of sentences I wrote:

January 6: On a one-night camping date on an unseasonably warm moonlit January evening, we had martinis, hamburgers, and the place to ourselves

January 14:  The house got blessed in the morning, and its inhabitants ate luscious sirloin in the evening.

January 26: Pre-Super Bowl tour and lunch with mom and dad.

January 29: “Keep doing what you’re doing, one minute at a time, until you can’t possibly do it any more.”

January 30: Further healing, this time on a monastic forest walk by springs, a waterfall, and a river.

I’m not only writing these with real ink on an actual calendar but also with cyber ink on a Google calendar.  You could do either, whichever suits your lifestyle and disposition.

Words have power: they create, they record, they delight.  Keeping a calendar journal, writing one sentence per day for two, three, four or more days per week is an easy way to add a few significant ones into your life.

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.
