In this age of digital everything — in spite of all the talk of paperless this and paperless that — I was just at Staples and there were shelves of paper, journals, spiral notebooks and steno notebooks... and pens and pencils.

People have blogs so that when they write something people they don’t even know can read and know what’s going on in their life or just in their head.

Back to Staples — bought a new Parker Jotter with gel ink. I already have Parker pens in both rollerball and plain old ball point, fine and medium points respectively. I’m going to reteach myself how to write in cursive... Maybe keep a journal...
Better is the Enemy of Good Enough.
Okay, what’s your point??

I only write and keep the interesting parts. A record of one's life can come in a variety of forms. During a journalling hiatus, I continued to record my life via e-mail conversations.

My son and daughter have just started working a few months ago. I advised them to keep a work journal. I kept a 100 page notebook in my work bag and wrote things like phone numbers of visiting engineers, or what projects we were starting ..etc. The 100 page notebook filled up and I started a 200 page notebook but retired when it became half-way full

These journals are very useful. For example you need to remember someone phone number six months after you met them. Or you need to write self-evaluation at the end of the year. You will definitely forget the details of what you were doing, unless you write them down.

Sounds like a fine project, Chisel.
