Reference Points

Will this now and then
turn into a “remember when?”
Those times etched forever
into your soul, reference points
in your life in which days and
events will be compared against.
How will you remember if
memory is left to chance,
or how will you recall
that high school dance, what
you wore, how she smelled,
and all those things
you couldn’t tell anyone else
but yourself.
A first apartment, summer’s
drive to the lake, friends formed
by give and take, trust was built,
bonds were formed; the death
of a parent, or first child born.
Stuff that matters, do you
write it down? You knew
you should then and now.

Do you keep a journal?
Have you thought about it, or do you know you should, but haven’t bothered in a while.
There is a lot to write about these days, just as there was before, but maybe now you can’t ignore those thoughts that keep coming back hard.
If you need a little help getting started, or a gentle nudge to get back into it, soultalk is offering a free online journaling workshop October 1 – 11th.
There will be daily prompts, group discussion, and ideas on creating your own book of memories. We will be working with a theme of Come on Home, both where you were and what you are now.
There is always something to write about. Always. All ways.
Journaling can be an insightful process, a habit you will appreciate if and when and now and then.
