Final words from today's Harper's:

" . . . psychologists warned that people who keep diaries are more likely to suffer from headaches, insomnia, digestive complaints, and social problems."

"Social problems?" Well, that's vague and frightening.

But don't poets already suffer from all these things anyway? Does that mean we suffer more?
Yes, I think so. Being diarists of the soul, and all.

Uh oh, I just gave myself heartburn, a workshop rule from way back when was "never write ____ of the soul. It's cheap." How will I face my peers . . .

and so on.
