Why I keep a diary: 1) It helps me pay attention to my life 2) I have a terrible memory 3) It’s a good place to have bad ideas austinkleon.com/2018/02/20/wha… https://t.co/e7RyvR1z4d
I goof off. I take a walk, go to the movies, read trashy books, play with my kids. twitter.com/jkottke/status…
I am trying my best to honor my actual day-to-day experience. My thoughts, my relationships, my sensory experiences of the world. A diary helps me do that better than anything else I've tried.
