MOST RECENT

Pages from my journals or, more precisely, pages from my #Moleskine wilderness journals, part one.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have yet to think of myself as someone who keeps a diary or #journal with regularity, despite thousands of pages and hundreds of thousands of words crafted over decades. I suppose this is because my note-keeping is not as disciplined as I would like, with gaps of months hither and thither. Yet, combine this handwritten record with my archive of emails, letters, messages and a plethora of other digital words (and, indeed, images and other media), and I have a relatively complete record of much of my life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the coming weeks, months and years, expect more discussion on this subject. I have many stories, some, such as my first longterm wilderness adventure, already partially shared, others yet to be distilled into something I am willing or able to throw out into the world. Ideas of what to write, what to post, whether here or on my forthcoming website, are definitely not in short supply, only time is.

My name is Laura and I spend an inordinate amount of time feeling sad about Alan Bennett’s inevitable (but not impending - unless you know something I don’t?) death #thingsyouneverknewaboutme

From one book in July to 3 in August🙆🏼‍♀️ Planning is all the same. Journaling and note-taking just expanded to finish up inserts previously started. #travelerscompany #travelersnotebook #sojournerbyretrowtures #b6slim #chicsparrow #mysparrow #chicsparrowcremebrulee #pockettn #fieldnotes #edc #plannercommunity #journal #diarist #chronicler #notebooks #plannerlove #leatherlove #analogvibes #mylife

dear anaïs,

i think a huge part of healing isn't the removal of pain but making space for it to live and breathe. i thought that's what i had done the past ten years. i dealt with it, at least as much as i could bear, but i didn't realize that my body also absorbed the impact. while i had to face the immediate trauma, some of the other stuff nestled and buried itself deep in my body.

i've been noticing that after my sessions, i get these terrible headaches, body aches, and nausea. i have to lie still or take slow walks for the symptoms to pass. it's been a decade, and i'm still pulling out the weeds. this, too, shall pass. but will it?

can it ever be as light as bubbles (cue bach's prelude in C)? if i let it permeate through me now, can you tell me it will dissipate?

excavat[-ed,-ing],

Spending some time with #anaïsnin
I've always fancied myself a diarist but when I encountered Nin was when I began taking diary writing seriously.
I want to dive deeply as she did, but I am admittedly repressing much of my personality, denying my dreams, and dulling my senses for fear of feeling too much. Tarot helps me connect with that deeper part of myself- sometimes it's ugly, sometimes it's superficial- but it's all part of who I am in the present moment.

“It almost felt like I’d walked into some inner room where my lived experiences could pass through and come out as language.” from The Art of Memoir, Mary Karr’s brilliant, funny, vivid book about memoir: why and why not to write one, and how to get on with it in an expert fashion, while touring the reader through the classics. I feel as if I’m sitting in on her Syracuse MFA classes, just by reading this book. Lately, one of my writing instructors has been saying that I might need to layer my memoir-truths in fiction, to shield myself. But in the end, I can’t bear to turn my prose away from the heart of the truth... This book helped remind me why. And so, I live in this inner room now, transforming my reality into prose. Distillation and compression, however, the ultimate raw challenges of poetry, continue to elude me. As does brevity. 😂 #memoir #marykarr #marykarrny #theartofmemoir #memory #truth #nonfiction #creativenonfiction #CNF #cnfwriter #diarist #writerproblems #searchfortruth #writerlife #writingstudent #writingcommunity #memoirist #gradschool #syracuse #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writer #writing #book #booklover #booksonwriting #syracuseuniversity #mfa #writers #poetry
