As I write today, I'm wondering if it's better to write a hard copy? For most of my life I have kept a hard copy journal of my life. At the beginning of this year I started doing both but this seems to be the one winning out lately. But I miss the pen and paper journal. I don't think I'm really good at writing about my life, maybe it's because I'm not good at the details. Maybe it's because I get caught in what the weather is doing. I wonder why I get caught up in the weather, Maybe it's because the weather is always changing and there is a part of me that misses the constant change that my life used to be. I think that my life still changes, but not because of me moving or getting a new house mate. Because life does change, but I am aware, that Ecclesiastes is more relevant in my life than it has ever has been, it seems that I have come to the age where I am aware of the statement the writer makes when they says there is nothing new under the sun!
Though, in my life time it seems there have been a great many changes, at least in regard to words and writing and reading and books, and not only that but the way we buy and sell, but here is the thing, we still read and write and buy and sell, that is the part that has stayed the same. The part about those things that have changed is the way we do those things. And so then in my life time, information has changed technology's and really that is huge because for so long it used be a certain technology/tool. The change has been pretty drastic and continues to have very big changes on our way of life, how we do things, Jobs, and how we experience life even.
On to the next thought, I have often thought, I wish I were motivated to do a photo journal, but I never do stuff like that. If I did what would it look like. How and when would I do it, life happens everyday and for me it feels pretty mundane, is it worth a picture, is it even worth writing about? I'm not sure. At times, especially with the mundane parts of life, time goes by slowly. It is in those times, I find myself thinking about the past the future or the "if onlys". It's in those times that I lose track of the present moments and soon they are gone, and I think to myself what happen to the time. If I did a photo journal I could at least remember what happened in the moments of life, here is the kicker though, to document moments with writing or photos, requires that we be present in the moment. LOL!
