From "Leaving a trace" by Alexandra Johnson
Today, sitting for even five minutes with a journal offers a rare cease-fire in the battle of daily life, a time when we're not graded, not performing. It's a time when one attempts some truth, silencing those carping inner voices.
A blog is a form of journal, diary, call it what you will. A slice of life recorded in electronic form. I just started a course on journal keeping at Writer's Village University, some of it may appear here in the next six weeks.
