LifeJournal™ Newsletter – June 2007



I recently returned from a two week family vacation. I purposefully checked my e-mail only occasionally during the vacation. I felt relieved taking a holiday from the constant contact of the world, not reading news, not watching television, and just enjoying time traveling with my family. It’s astounding to return from a trip and then get back to everyday life. The world looks different: It’s interesting to write about how the world looks from my new eyes. I newly value the comforts of my house, the view of the trees from my bedroom window, and the quiet of living on a cul-de-sac in Florida in the summer.

If you take a vacation this summer that takes you out of your daily routine, notice your new perspective on arriving home and write about it. You probably will quickly acclimate to your at home/work existence-so take advantage of transition during the first few days back to re-think some daily routines and attitudes.

This newsletter includes two articles. One is about the question that every journal or diary writer probably ponders: what to write about?

The second article offers some information about where to find articles about such important technical topics as backing up your files, moving your journal from one computer to another, and synchronizing journal entries on more than one computer. I strive to write these technical instructions without jargon, so if you do have difficulty understanding, please let me know.

What to Write About

The French journaler Anais Nin described what she wrote about daily writing: “I chose the event of the day that I felt most strongly about, the most vivid one, the warmest one, the nearest one, the strongest one.”

How do you decide what to write about in your journal on a particular day? Do you choose consciously? Do you let it flow from your fingers and see what pours out? Do you have a schedule of topics that you write about repeatedly?





”I am so impressed with your software. The  layout is very logical and well thought out and the execution of the software is flawless and enjoyable to use.”
