Like many writers and bloggers in the world, I have pretty much always kept a journal. Also a self professed stationery and paper lover, overly drawn to notepads, books, writing utensils, sketch books, scrap pieces of cardboard or any acceptably blank surface just begging to be written or drawn on. Why? Whether with stories, poems, drawings or random lists, I have always found a reason to put pen to paper (or whatever). So, in the technological age we exist in currently, and with myself trying not to rebel against it and instead take advantage of it, it only makes sense that I try my hand at a more high-tech and public version of something I love.
The space (blog) provides for me an opportunity to express what I normally wouldn’t on paper. At least not as much, which is to try and describe the experiences and happenings I find overwhelming joy in in a way that others might appreciate as well. It’s like taking the semi-organized tea party of my journal, that of raw feelings, manifestations of thought or otherwise incomprehendable things that I try to grasp; a colorful catalog of images and sounds, and creating a work that will allow me to pass on the sensation. Fitting, due to the fact that humans are undeniably social creatures, making sense of our urges to create and share with others.
The page is an offering to the creative conscious, the journal has always allowed me to transfer these results of electrical firings into the void, and the blog allows me to go one step further and share them with the world.
