Tree Stories 3719 is about journals ... the one in which you write & draw, and the one we're creating for those who want a journal in which to write and draw
The Journal You Have ...
Journals have been a source of inspiration just as they are a companion of written and visual feelings.
A journal travels with me on my visits around the world. Capturing my thoughts and feelings, and often the wisdom of others who walk with me.
From the archives, I'll often pull out my journal about my bus trip from Katmandu, Nepal to London, England in 1979. I get a chuckle when reading about the money spent, where and for what. Also, incidents like:
- eating a peanut butter covered french baguette sitting on a park bench looking at a church in Cologne, Germany
- watching soldiers board the bus because of the start of the up-rising in Iran
- laying on the floor of the bus - near the back - because I was so sick; however, we had to keep moving to make the next destination
Journals record history and mystery, and highlight the presence of each moment - moving thought to the idea shared.
And, I'm sure you could share aWELLsome stories from and about your existing journals. They are a great source for camp fire stories and comedic insights for your new monologue. They are a source of your legacy stories as they are a reference book for the generations who follow.
They record your personal growth and they list what is forthcoming whether a To do List, a Bucket List, a To Be List, or a Paddle Down the River List!
Nowadays, there are digital journals. You type in the text and add images. There are voice-to-text journals when walking and moving about.
Still the paper journal - the tree journal offers a connection with trees and plants. There is something special in this connection. Add a fountain pen - I'm in the tree tops smiling!
Our Creation of a Tree-Related Journal ...
It's time to develop and make a available a tree-related journal.
When we've begun to collect tree-related quotes - original tree drawings - 100 word tree stories - quick how-to tips for tree trekking - and a section about Tree Trekking and the Write for Shade Movement.
If you have "something" to add ... we will add
- your first (and optional: last) name,
- your website address/or name of your town-city
and we'll send you a free copy of the journal (in print and digital formats).
... 90% of the funds raised are channelled to the Minstrel Ways Fund.
From my head, heart, and hands ...
soothes the active mind
Jitter bugging, waltzing,
hip hopping, jiving
Whereas the dance moves
make for stories
penned on paper
