Journal keeping.

Whether it is the Art Journaling tag, or my current Filofax obsession, I'm not sure, but I've been thinking a lot about journal keeping.

I got my first journal when I was a little girl, a few days before my 10th birthday. I started writing in it immediately and have since filled about 30+ diaries and notebooks with my (almost) daily writing. I stopped keeping a written diary as such when I discovered Art Journaling, but even my Art Journals are a chronological document of my life. That's almost 30 years of journal keeping in one way or another.

This morning I was reading Dispatch from LA and saw this video about a gentleman who's kept a journal since 1947. It's amazing just how much he's got in there, and that he's able to go back and find when exactly he met someone, or did something. Mine are not that detailed, and I certainly never had the discipline to keep up daily writing.
