What I Did With Old Journals & Diaries

I started to journal in my pre-teens.  In subsequent years the boxes of notebooks were moved to as many as 10 dwellings.  At each home I would find a tucked-away spot to ensure privacy.  In recent years I decided to glance through them in order to determine their fate.  Having established the words contribute nothing, the journals were burned in the wood stove.  Doing so was cleansing!  Now, when there's something private, psychological to work through on paper the process of writing is done on scraps.  Once a certain level of understanding has occurred I destroy the notes. Energetically, I figure keeping the words around is binding.
