The Paradox…

It is easy to conclude that someone who spends a lot of time journaling their memoirs lives in the past.  A writer is consumed with images and stories that are not happening right now, but that happened yesterday or last year.  The paradox is that memoirs are not necessarily all about the past.  It is using the past as a tool to fully experience the present.  It is a way of allowing time to be still.  By taking the time to remember, we live each moment.  And we become more aware.
