Your Life is a Bestseller

“I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.”
Oscar Wilde


Oscar Wilde’s life WAS sensational.  After all, he was the famous Irish writer and poet who wrote a masterpiece, “The Importance of Being Ernest.” And he truly believed in the importance of being Oscar Wilde.

We live exciting lives of adventure, discovery and drama.  I think that our diaries are sensational!  We should always carry them with us to read on our journeys….

  1. I just love your entries. Another great quote from a great man. I love the idea of taking a diary everywhere with me. My diaries [or journals, as I call them] are now thousands of pages long. I used to type them up, but haven’t done so for several months. I also used to read through them regularly, but that seems to be a thing of the past. After all, I find type-written work boring now that my creativity is awakening. Now I love pretty notebooks, coloured card, and coloured inks. The journey through life is ever-changing, and sometimes at great speed. Some things fall away when they no longer serve. I find this happening to me constantly now. Thank you for such thought-provoking material. You are always giving me something to think about, and often to change. Thank you. Have an amazing day.


    1. You always start my day off with sunshine. Why am I not surprised that you love notebooks – I have them scattered everywhere. How strange it is that we follow the lives of people we consider important, yet never once think that our lives are worth documenting. Every time I think about diaries, I think Anais Nin who seemed to understood the essence of writing: “If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don’t write, because our culture has no use for it.”


  2. Now we can take electronic notebooks with us, too. We need to write for ourselves, it is one way of keeping track of our progress–and for our children and grandchildren. We will let them get to know us that way.
