Happy New Year! No Resolutions.

I gave up daily journal keeping three or so years ago because I felt it was tying me to particular mental states and perceived problems. Instead, I wanted to be able to let go of all the score keeping or obsessing and move with the moment. Yesterday I decided I wanted to keep some kind of record of those moments: the weather, where and what I ate, the books and movies I have been reading- not for the public, but for me. Then of course I came across this discussion of keeping a logbook instead of journal. That’s the ticket. Facts. And staying in the present.

Hope you all had a lovely holiday and this year will bring much joy.
