Why Write?

I miss my friends from England.  It makes me appreciate how wonderful they always were to me. Thankfully, the blogging thing helps me stay in tune with some of their lives.  One good friend posted a very fitting quote on her blog today and I thought I would re-post it here.  I may try to find a permanent place for it on the sidebar, for this is how I feel about my own blogging and more private journaling.  It's a beautiful life, and I want to remember all of it.

"You [...] will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of these meaningful and significant things.  Some of them may be funny. Some may be of significance only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experience."
