This was the perfect post for me this morning from purlsoho

Initially I imagined the magical thinking jar was for ideas.
My mind raced; an ah-ha moment.
A visual representation of ideas.
A big bold jar to capture my thoughts and energy
just like fireflies in the summer.
Fireflies collection from Heather Ross
Just like the little scraps of paper that Lincoln used...
(see last post)
The Jar will become my desktop reminder to capture all my ideas.
The pieces of paper will inspire me create
and finish projects.
Brooke Reynolds's magical jar is all about capturing the wonderful words of her children.
My day book has always been my magical jar for my Miss Is's magical words.
As Miss Is grew up and observed life, she would say the darnedest things.
When I could I would jot them down.
Like the journals that I posted about last summer,
my day book transports me back to the very day...
it keeps the memories clear and bright...
so much can be lost as we go through the daily grind of life.
Boy that sounds a little pessimistic.
Now that my Miss Is is well into her teens
she can still say the darnedest things
but our conversations are so interesting,
about ideas, life, politics, history and literature,
movies, and kidstuff,
people and predicaments.
I am on a hunt for my big, glass jar.
