“Writ­ing a jour­nal implies that one has ceased to think of the future and has decided to live in the present. It is an announce­ment to fate that you expect noth­ing more. It is asser­ting that you take each day as it comes and make no con­nec­tion between today and other days. Writing a jour­nal means that when you are afraid to swim across the vast ocean of life, you attempt to drink it drop by drop instead.”

“Writ­ing about one’s own life, it is only when one writes about the most inti­mate and seem­ingly idio­syn­cratic details that one touches others.”
