I have been mulling over the notion of keeping a journal for it seems like aeons. Phrases and sentences, observations, they skitter through my mind as I’m gardening/driving/swimming/staring at the ocean or listening to the sound of rain on the ‘tin’ roof. My big problem with ‘blog’ is the sound of the word, it’s ugly and abrupt. Journal sounds too affected. Diary implies it will be daily. I hope it will be a record. What was I thinking about, stressing over, excited enough to write about?
Will I be disciplined enough? Will I become pompous or flippant? Jaded, cynical, condescending or just plain boring? No. I’m going to really try to explain why we are here, why we chose to change the dream and put down roots in Panama, what drives me crazy about this country, what lifts my heart and makes my day! (Apart from my husband :-)).
A good friend has advised me to ‘tag’ as what we are doing is interesting to a lot of people ( even if it just proves to them that we are nuts and they are sane!). We are ‘off-grid’ using solar power and managing our own water supply, building our own house in a foreign country, planning to be as ‘eco’ as we can, growing some of our own food, will be making our own furniture, and more.
Let me know what you think
