Got out the pen and paper last night. After a week's delay, got back to writing in a real journal instead of relying solely on blogs, computers, etc... for recording my thoughts and activities. It was cool. A little weird. The last entry prior to last night was January 5, 2005. So much has changed. Old crushes are just that... old. New crush has replaced winter's woes. The unknown about the book is now known. Everything I worried about in terms of how this summer would be is no longer a worry. I think it was Marianne Williamson... or some former regular guest on Oprah... who said the only thing that's real is the current moment; everything else is not real. That's a cool little thought process to apply sometimes.
The biggest part of my return to journaling, other than crush, was jotting notes and thoughts about NYC this week. Figuring out maps. Subways. All those frigging streets. Time schedules. I ended up going to the computer for that. But otherwise, I like the old fashioned paper and pen... and may just use that process while in NYC to start work/notes on book number three. I think NYC would be a great place to start a book. Hmmm...
