journals

I’ve been reading some of my past journals in an attempt to discover who I was during various snapshots of my life. The moments captured in photographs + my journals give a pretty good snapshot of who I was with, what I was feeling, and what my relationships looked like.

It’s always quite the activity to go back and read these. Sometimes it’s comical the ridiculous nature in which I complained or what seemed to take over my life. Other times, there is incredible insight that I was feeling as a 17 year old that I don’t feel at all today (hmmm…. retracting in wisdom as I age??)

What struck me today in readings was the following quote from T.S. Elliott:

” Endless invention, endless experiment brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness, knowledge of speech but not of silence and knowledge of words and an ignorance of the Word.

Where is the life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?”

Well that just hit me straight in the face. Whew. Thanks T.S.
