i keep journals. and when i say "keep", i mean keep. i don't write on them. somehow, the purchase of a journal is an enough satisfaction for me. i used to write on them, or at least one of them, the harry potter one. and i only use my favorite type of pen, too. parker, with one of them refillable ink types, like fountain pens.
sometimes, i write on the very first page. a line smack in the middle of the page. i like short phrases like damien rice's "so it is..." or usher's "this is my confession..." but when you turn the page, there's nothing to read.
each blank page somehow tells a bigger story, so big words on ink are not enough to anchor down these stories. each blank page begs to ask what happened to me that day, or how was the concert, what did you do in class, any new AICPA rulings?
i think i'll succumb again to my weakness and get me another journal tomorrow.
