Journal Entry, 6 February 2019

Leave a comment

Sometimes my heart becomes hardened in such a subtle way that I don’t realize, setting up a sort of invisible shield. Shutting the world out and me in. Then a chance encounter cracks its fragile outer shell, letting in light and love out. And in an instant I can see—am reminded—that is all there is. The most important thing. To love one another, no matter what. It’s so simple and equally difficult. But remembering is the most difficult part of all.

Look Up! (and down and all around)

This post coincides with me coming to an end to another journal and beginning another. Why, I wonder, do I write in them…I’ve been doing it on-and-off for more than twenty-five years; I do it for myself, I suppose. Really it’s for self-preservation. But this video (below) makes me think; actually I’ve thought about this a lot lately…how we are virtually connected but not really connected at all. While I try to live simply I am still tethered to my phone or some other device daily (hourly). And it may seem odd for me to post this on my blog, as this is sort of an anti-blog post. I of course do hope that you keep visiting this little blog everyday, but I also hope that you watch this video…it’s a sort of spoken poem really. This said–and you’ll know what I mean by this after you watch the video–I’m wondering what life experiences will fill the pages of this new journal in the coming days and months.
