So the priest I've been seeing periodically (when both our schedules allow) for... not exactly spiritual direction, even though he's doing a bit of that I suppose, more of personal crisis management - I saw him this week, and he suggested that maybe I need more creative outlets.

I started sewing recently, and I'm taking more lessons at that, so that will be something. I do still sing, but that doesn't feel like a creative outlet so much as an interpretive outlet, although I do need to practice more than I currently do (since that solves everything).

So what I've decided to do is to start writing again, in a small way. Writing as in words, that is. All the music I try to write ends up merging into some tune I already know, and although I know that can be remedied, I don't have time to devote to that at present.

I've had a mood tracker app on my phone for some time, and that small bit of introspection seems to have helped a bit. That app does have journalling capabilities, but typing that sort of thing out on a phone keyboard is too daunting and I don't want to do it.

I suppose audio diaries would be more convenient in certain ways, but there are other people around nearly all the time and I don't want to sit around talking to myself about things I might not want them to actually know, anyway.

Anyway, so far it seems to be working. Writing things down helps to get them out of my head.

I had a public (or semi-public) LiveJournal for years, so I'm not entirely unused to doing this sort of thing, but it's been awhile and the stuff I'm dealing with now, I'd really rather it not be shared with the world at large, so going back to that is out of the question.
