ABOUT PEOPLES' PUBLIC JOURNAL
People’s Public Journal is a collection of several creative projects, many of which are from random people I’ve met.
It started as “Rule Number One:” ALWAYS carry pen and paper.
and “Rule Number Two:” ALWAYS write it down.
Since 1999, I've semi-consistently written down anything I found interesting, inspiring, funny, etc.
Later I realized I should start asking people if they want to be quoted or anonymous; most opt to be anonymous.
In the early 2000s my parents gave me a leatherbound journal that was too nice to keep to myself,
so I started taking it with me everywhere and passing it around,
asking people to contribute whatever was on their mind,
or sometimes saying nothing and just leaving it with strangers to see what would happen.
I've been a rideshare driver for the past 5 years.
I started writing about my rideshare passengers,
then I realized I should provide a Journal for them...
I have previously thought of this as a fun side project
but based on feedback I am starting to understand
it's important to share on a bigger scale.
I'm working towards a print publication...
