What is this need to communicate, to have communion, to find a community. It is more than a desire for an audience. It involves a desire for feed-back.
When I journal in a book I occasionally think in terms of putting it down so I can get it out of my system - the vent! But more often it is the list or the dream. Writing down the goal or defining and refining the dream. Almost daily, I journal as I read the Bible to remember and connect the ideas and concepts, to "note well" and to pray!
