Daydreams – Summer is over

Dear  Fellow Journalers,

Summer is over and it is time to take all those photos and put them in scrapbooks, rather than the most convenient box you can find. I know you are wondering why I am talking about scrapbooking and  not journaling, well, scrapbook journaling is actually a memory book of pictures. Why not write about the feelings and emotions of the pictures?

Remember the 5 w’s you learned in school? Who, what, when, where why and how?

So, if I had a picture of a birthday party, my scrapbook journal would state:

“L”, Grandpappy, Grandma, “D” and “A” are celebrating “L” 2nd birthday on________ . “J”, “L’s” Godmother took the picture. We at ______ and we are laughing because “L” liked the box our gift came in!

Or how about the day you graduated from college? Your parents were so proud of you. Your father had just said _____

Or how about that camping trip to ____ You actually liked sleeping in a tent!

Or that fish you caught really was ____long!

Try this and see if your memories are triggered by the pictures, long after the event.
