I haven't been writing in my journals for a while. I've taken some notes in Journal 5, but no real meanderings. I decided to pull out some older volumes. Volume 1 which I started in September 2008. I've only completed 3 volumes (1, 2 and 4). Volume 3 is not completed, it is a larger size book and harder to carry around, but I'm working on it again. There is a volume 6 (not pictured) that is in process as well.
I found it interesting looking through them. I like to cut out pictures and paste them in. Sometimes I use them as research or food for thought.
James C. Kaufman in 2001 to refer to the phenomenon that poets are more susceptible to mental illness than other creative writers. I suppose this would have been a dark time in my life.
I look through these books and sometimes I find random blurbs and wonder what the heck was I thinking.
