I saw a documentary on the 1000 Journals Project a few months back. It was fascinating. When one of my favourite friends, the awesome artist Tracy Moore appeared on the screen unexpectedly, i screamed out loud and started marching around the room.
So when one number 381 of THE original 1000 was placed in my hands by Tracy when I was at the Play retreat, I kinda dropped everything i was working on, to make my mark. The originals are RARE ( see the info below) And it was a highlight of my trip.
Let me rephrase that. In that last two week adventure, there were sooooo many highlights, that I have to really re-qualify my statement and say it was a highlight of that HOUR….
From the get- go I felt like I had slipped into a parallel universe. So much happened…constantly!
Now that I am home, and have time to reflect on the crush of experiences, I’m realising it wasn’t the usual ‘horizons broadening’ kind of trip, it was a “wow, I’m SO loved and so IN love with SO many AWESOME people.” I feel so HAPPY. Deeply joyful. I’m Seattle smiling.
I hope you are having a great day and more stories from the trip ASAP.
The 1000 Journals Project is an ongoing collaborative experiment attempting to follow 1000 journals throughout their travels. The goal is to provide a method for interaction and shared creativity among friends and strangers.
How it Works:
Those who find the journals add something to them. A story, drawing, photograph, anything really. Then they pass the journal along, to a friend or stranger, and the adventure continues.
Unfortunately, you’ve got a better chance of winning the lottery, then of getting a hold of a journal. That’s the problem when there are only 1000 of them. Now, you’re best bet is to check out 1001 Journals where you can sign up for a journal, or launch your own traveling, location, or personal journals.
You can also check out the new book, which contains entries from journals around the world. It looks just like a journal, has these crazy stitched pages inside. Check it out on Amazon.
