the journey begins … again

In between storm bursts yesterday, there was an amazing sunset.

I’m great at starting blogs… and then convincing myself I have nothing worth anyone’s time to read. But I’m going to try to take my own words from last August to heart, including that note about sunset pictures:

Note to us all:

 Journal your travels, whether you’re on the trip of a lifetime … or just going to the grocery store!!

 p.s. EVERY trip … yes even that trip to get groceries … is the trip of a lifetime. YOUR lifetime.

 Get out there and document it.

 Was someone especially nice to you on your trip? Write about it.

Was someone a jerk to you? Vent about it.

Did you see an amazing sunset while you were out? Take a photo. Make a drawing. Write about how it made you feel. Stick it all in your travel guide.

Do you hate some particular vegetable? Document it.

How much did you pay for bread? Stick your receipt in your book.

 There is no activity so mundane that you can’t document it in a meaningful way.

 I’m starting this journey to craft enchantment in my life. Isn’t it wise to bring along a guide book?! (Except in this case we’re writing the guide book as we go along.)

 So come and join me. I’ll be over here by the campfire writing about my day.

 “I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.” ― Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest
