I like making things; moving my body; being productive and busy. I have a photographic memory, and function quite visually. Putting marks on paper makes me feel peaceful when everything is too wild or overwhelming.
As a recording medium, I like journalling to help myself remember details that are beautiful, things that bring joy from minute to minute. These are unparalleled in value, and I like holding on to them.
I decided to scan my journals, because if they got caught in a rainstorm, or hopped on the wrong bus, or got involved with a dodgy crowd and died of drug-overdose, I wouldn't be able to rescue them, and I would be sad.
Let me know what you think.
