Now that I feel better and more clear-headed, I have a renewed desire to work on my Old Journal and uplift some entries for my Three Journal. I feel like writing again! I have noticed a funny thing, though. With my desire to write, my inclination to play chess has dropped. The day has only so much time, and I suppose both writing and chess are great eaters of hours. So, one of these activities has to go short-changed. Now, if I were a tournament player, I might go with chess as my first love. As it is, I think I have to go with the writing whenever I feel up to it. Even if I don't get paid or famous for my trouble, writing still works for me as a spiritual exercise, deepening my sense of self.
