Jotting down thoughts.
For a long time I’ve contemplated keeping a journal. The fascination can likely be attributed back to the visual examples of Thomas Wayne’s hand-written journal in Batman or Captain Picard’s daily recorded ‘Captain’s Log’. Keeping a regular account of personal and/or professional thoughts may be a positive method to exercise what’s on my mind, whether others read it or not, it’s been said. There is a certain comfort in that. My fear has always been that what I write may be too personal or misconstrued by an unintended audience. Or perhaps what I write is interesting enough that it might ignite conversation with others, friends or complete strangers, which in turn could have extrinsic benefits. Either way I have to start somewhere, so for the time being I’ll start with professional musings, actions and affects that come from the various projects I take part in.
In the end, self-servingly, a journal writer has to wonder if one day they’ll be a topic of curiosity to the point that people search out their writings. I suppose it could go either way; regarded vs infamous, hopefully interesting enough that they’re imparting words of wisdom to whomever may take the time to read it.
Where to start? This is what the bar in my house will look like. #bourbon #scotch #whiskey #afternoondrunk #toomanychoices (at Southland Whiskey Kitchen)
