This board is where we can discuss the Garden journals of others If we comment here, then the Journal Owners posts will be uninterrupted and everyone can Ooooh and AHHH at the other's journals...Here... besides, You don't want me writing in yer journal.. I'M a MeSsy wrIter
Journal keeping was part of how the average person built a separate record of their activity. Much of some of the most articulate became the context of later writing. Or of others authorship. I'll hold up Samuel Peppys, certainly Samuel Clemmens, Lorenzo Lorraine Langstroth, and what there is for a true history of Simon Girty (Simon was illiterate).
Having looked over the shoulder of a ghost writer who gave flesh to old 18th & 19th century joournals. The least articulate writer here is head and shoulders more articulate than many of the ghostly shoulders we are standing on.
Are we writing something important? I dunno, ask the guy who plays with our journals in a hundred years.
Well yur right pharmel phil .. I think thats a wonderful idea... I will have a hard time writing a journal for anything, for the world to see .. Seems weird because I can write all this other stuff huh?? But I know that would be a great idea
I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I don’t know the answer.
