Journals

Twelve years ago when I started teaching at the high school, I decided to have my students write a poem a couple times a week.  I do it along with them and have filled all these notebooks over the years. 

Many of them were sent to me from my friend, Anne, in Florida, and some I bought myself.

A few weeks ago when we started second semester, I didn't have a notebook on the first day of journal writing so went through my file cabinet which contains no files but just a bunch of stuff.  I was happy to find this journal:
It was given to me by my sister, Sally, back in 1980.  I tried keeping a diary for a few weeks back then but it just didn't take. 

What a thrill it was to read what I'd written.

And, now, I'm happy to be able to fill it with poetry.

What a treasure to find something written so long ago.

Gorgeous journal! How lovely it is to find something again after so much time has passed. Journaling is one of my favorite hobbies. Just got back into it recently.
