Thoughts disentangle themselves passing over the lips and through pencil tips.

That’s exactly why I journal!
Good stuff. Ran into this earlier today:
When we no longer know what to do we have come to our real work, and when we no longer know which way to go we have begun our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.
My thoughts work themselves into coherence and completion as they pass through my finger tips to the keys below giving full express on the screen in front of me.
Or “passing over the lips through the finger tips” as in keystrokes. But I do like handwriting more for journaling for sure. Even more tactile, I think. Reaching back through history as man has written and captured life. If our world goes on and technology continues to evolve, future man will say, “Remember when we used write with keyboards?” Like that scene from Star Trek IV when Scottie picks up a mouse and says to it, “Computer! Oh a keyboard, how quaint.”
That is so true! It is amazing how we have evolved.
I find writing with a pencil or pen is much more memorable. It is also a great thinking tool while doodling on the side of the paper. Haha
I’ve often heard this quote (or some version of it) attributed to Dawson Trotman.
