How does one begin a journey? By taking the first step. First steps, those earliest beginnings of what will be, could be. First steps are like possibilities unknown. We take them despite fear, anticipating an unseen outcome. We take them with hope and one at a time. First steps are like the first pages of a journal. Open to possibility.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That’s a pretty lofty load of words for one picture don’t you think?

Let’s explore this idea, shall we? Have you ever had a photo or piece of art inspire your words? Have you ever used and image to spark your creativity while creating, writing a story or poem?

The Journal Keeper’s Journey: Journaling as a Lifestyle (Series)


 “The diary is the only form of writing that encourages total freedom of expression. Because of its very private nature, it has remained immune to any formal rules of content, structure or style. As a result, the diary can come closest to reproducing how consciousness evolves.” ~Tristine Rainer


Today begins a journey for those of you joining me here at Enthusiastically, Dawn.

To avoid confusion and clarify what is coming in the days ahead I want to invite you to check in here with questions, comments, thoughts.

Since I prefer the Diary definition below more than the Journal term described by most resources, you won’t mind indulging me here today for a quick look, will you?
