journey: the act of traveling
Much can be said about journaling, but that is not my purpose here. I am presenting some snippets only.
journal: the recording of travels: an exploration of one's adventures, thoughts, inspiration, interests, observations, creativity
When my son was in 4th grade, the teacher had the students write in a journal everyday. They could write about any topic and draw pictures, too.
a bit of a page from one of his journalsWhen my daughter was young, she and I shared a small book in which we would write back and forth to each other.

a few pagesEarlier this year, the etsybloggers had a journal swap. We were to journal every day for a month. This LINK states each day's topic. Judy, a team member, describes her experience and her feelings about her completed book. "Definitely not perfect, but a good lesson for me to learn acceptance of imperfection; life is too short to agonize over small things!" Read more about Judy's experience and see some pages from her book HERE.
Here's a photo of a journal in progress. I've been working on this for quite a while. (It's almost finished! winks to A!)
This is a fun weekly meme, under the direction of Jenny Matlock. This week, our letter is "J." Come and join HERE. You will be amazed at all the bloggy goodness to be found!
