Why I record words and thoughts

“what are you into?”

Only when your words go away do you realize how precious they are, how even dumb and wrong words are precious because the miracle is that we have any words at all. That’s why I record them now, because I think I know what it’s like for them to go away, and I’m astounded that they exist at all. Patterns that never needed recording before because they were obvious truth, are magical and powerful.

Everything I do tells you something about me, even the dumbest assertion, the least relevant quote, and when you look back at your past self with the wondering eye of a historian, whatever it was becomes precious.
