Journal books of the world

I'm not sure how I got there, but I spent a good half-hour browsing This project is an experiment in which 1000 blank journal books were sent around the world. Each person who recieved one had 24 hours to fill a page, then pass it on. According to the site, 999 of them are still in circulation.

Looking at some of the pictures, I can't help but feel like I really want to be a part of it. The pages of these books are full of stories, poems, pictures, paintings, collages... themes of love, war, death, uncertainty, run through the journals... profound exemplifications of humanness.

I wonder what my journal page would look like.


i want to do that so much, but it is almost impossible to sign up. maybe you could start one. i'm willing to be a part of it! just email me or IM me if you want to!

I think I'm going to get one large journal book, and pass it to an online friend (haven't figure out how, yet). Then they can pass it on, and so on. Sound good?

It does sound good.

Oh, wow I had completely forgotten about the 1000journals thing. That's been going on since 1999 or 2000 I think and I had so wanted to be a part of it back then. But my own stories just seem so mediocre. You should start something like it; that would be neat and less intimidating.
