Elevating the Moments

The daily act of setting down in words one's thoughts, observations, and actions elevates and orders those moments, separating them from the great mass of unexamined life. ~Steven Schnur on keeping a journal from the Editor's Note in Henry David's House

Ahhh, very inspiring. Thank you!

Here's another you may appreciate:
"Writing is a process in which we discover what lives in us. The writing itself reveals what is alive.
The deepest satisfaction of writing is precisely that it opens up new spaces within us of which we were not aware before we started to write.
To write is to embark on a journey whose final destination we do not know." ~Henri Nouwen
