Jason, on journal-keeping:
- jason: for the first two years here, i could never keep notes about what i was doing
jason: everything was in my head, or emails to myself and others, or on scraps of paper
jason: because if it didn’t take the form of a full-length diary entry or essay i wasn’t satisfied
jason: now i keep a notebook and i don’t care what i put in it, but am better off for having it
dervala: filling in the blanks between a new entry and the last was a burden.
dervala: but somehow scraps add up to substance
jason: and little scraps of love and joy add up to a marriage
