Door closing

When a door closes, knock on it a few times. But if it doesn’t open, let it stay closed.

In career, in love, in life, when you see the period at the end of the sentence, don’t try and turn it into a comma.

Know when something is over and move on.

A traveler writes a journal

Dear Fellow Journalers,

The following is a snippet of a conversation the traveler Adam Hachlander had with Sara Barnes of MyModernMet in May 2019. If you’re interested in reading the whole article, please email me.

QUESTION: What inspired you to start keeping a Travel Journal?

ANSWER: “I used to love adventure movies, especially those like Indiana Jones when I was a teenager. I liked the idea of having all your observations and memories noted down in a tiny notebook that I could always have on myself.”

QUESTION:How do you choose what to write/sketch about?

ANSWER: “I always try to note down something interesting or an interesting fact that I’ve learned, then something about the local culture”.

QUESTION:Do you take a lot of photos?

ANSWER: (My observations regarding his answer-I think he would rather draw his memories but finds that the camera is a nuisance unless he has to use it.) “I may be forced to take a few pictures and then document the page later.”

QUESTION: What do you think the benefits are to journaling your trips?”

Answer: The biggest benefit is definitely the ability to track down any of your experiences, memories, and observations.”

Wednesday words for September 11th

There are many memorable quotes from families and/or victims of one of the most devastating events in America’s history. One of them was uttered by President George W. Bush:

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and the ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.”

9/11 American people – those gallant first responders and loved ones who became innocent victims.
