When journaling no longer helps the writer create and write
One of my favorite people (and writers), Kim Hooper, has a gorgeous meditation/essay on her site about leaving behind the [kind of] love relationship she had with her journals. Kind of like breaking up, when the “other,” in this case, the journaling process, no longer nurtures the relationship in the same. Still, it can be difficult to let go of something that has given a kind of security, comfort. But how else does one grow?
Kim begins: “Since I was a kid, I’ve thought of “journal” as more of a verb than a noun.” Read the rest of In Memory of My Journals by clicking this link.
