Never too precious


Never too precious
Originally uploaded by ** Robyn **.

A journal as beautiful as this is an enormous responsibility. I bought it a number of years ago and then haven't had the nerve or the important topic to make any marks on the pages. Why is it that paper becomes so precious?

I don't really think that it is the paper that is so precious but rather that the thoughts and words aren't so precious

I have finally made marks on the first page and will carry it around with me until it is full. Life itself is the most precious of all

Yes, Robyn, mark it up and get it going...much more precious to have a beautiful diary like that filled with words, than holding blank paper and silent...;-)

I gave my daughter a beautiful journal something like what yours. It is yet to be "christened" with marks, words. I hope she will eventually find something that moves her to take pen,pencil, etc, in hand and begin!
I am glad you got a start... begin.. elaine

I have journals from both Grandmother's and one from my mom. I wish I knew how to preserve the one that is becoming hard to read. Might it be my eyes? Perhaps the pencil and ink Grandma used.

Hi, Robyn. How are you? Guess your spring is in full swing as our autumn is coming on nicely. I love the journal. It's beautiful. I sure understand about your reluctance to write/draw in it. But you go, girl, do it anyway!

Beautiful journal. I'll look forward to your work in it.

Hey, Robyn, hope all is well!

Oh, I know exactly how you feel - even more terrifying than white paper, a whole journal - and the more beautiful, the more frightening. Congratulations for getting it started.
