Spring cleaning

So here I am back on the surface of my desk. I have such a hard time tossing papers away, so they pile up and every so often I have to sweep stuff away and start over.

I always find something cool in among the papers. This time it was a (sorry to be so predictable) Ray Bradbury quote that I had printed out:

“Action is hope. At the end of the day, when you’ve done your work, you lie there and think, well, I’ll be damned. I did this today. It doesn’t matter how good it is, or how bad — you did it.”

I’m currently writing in a 20th journal, and I’ve saved them all, they’re all lined up. And with the surface clear, I can pull them out and read them again. 

On page 2 of the first journal, I wrote:

“A journal is a message from your awake and alive self to your future self: WAKE UP!”

Thanks, eight-years-ago me, I needed that.
