Journaling and Writing
Why Monkeys Aren't into Writing
A case for journaling and writing ...
Today I heard someone make a statement that made me think. This was it...
"The only difference between monkeys and humans is that humans write and monkeys do not write".
Now before anyone gets bent out of shape, this statement had nothing to do with evolution. The point was that we all should be writing more often. I'm going to associate it with journaling and writing life stories.
HE CONTINUED ON...
He continued by drawing general comparisons between humans and monkeys. He said "Think about it..."
He also stated that "As far as I know, no monkey has ever written a book, article or anything else for that matter".
He continued by saying that because we write, we (humans) have the ability to know what went on 2000 years ago. We keep records and preserve them.
We can learn from our mistakes, because of writing.
He joked that many teenagers make so many mistakes because, despite the things that have been written, teenagers don't believe what the "old codgers" have written!
When I first heard this, I was at first in relative disagreement with him, but was curious to hear more.
In the end, I thought his reasoning was pretty good and his point about people needing to be journaling and writing more is one that I totally agree with.
