“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” – Søren Kierkegaard
Wednesday, June 11th
I am tragically behind – once again – in this daily journal. Life got interesting, busy, tangled, and demanding.
I rely on my calendar to remind me what I was doing on any given day, but the essential emotions of that time have evaporated and details have been lost. What is more interesting? My belated and fuzzy reflections or my timely observations with more clarity and less synthesis.
For myself, I find more value in engaging this project in realtime. I want to write about my disgust, my fear, my joys, and my relaxation as I feel them not as I remember them. It’s more of a celebration that way of how one day leads to the next. One action begets another. One emotion, thought, or idea flows into a different understanding.
What do you get behind on that you wish you keep up with?
