Phyllis Theroux’ The Journal Keeper: A Memoir
There are undoubtedly as many journal keeping styles as there are journal keepers. Theroux advises that “Your journal should be a wise friend who helps you create your own enlightenment.” And she shows the reader just how she does that in this charming memoir. She selects important moments—large and small—of her days, reflects on them, and teases out helpful insights to give her life meaning. She is a shining example of living our best lives as we age. The beauty of her writing polishes the nuggets of her wisdom.
