The Benefits of Big Handbags & Journals...

There's a fab thing about carrying a large handbag... And, I'm not just talking about the fact that I can tote along assorted tubes of lipstick, my wallet and a portable umbrella--as well as every other necessity I tuck into my handbag each day...

Of course, these (and many other things) comprise the benefits of carrying a big handbag.  Nevertheless, the best thing is I can easily stow my journal in one, too.

This makes it convenient to pull her out and write at those times when I have an unexpected lull in time. Or...when I simply need to work things out for myself...

You see, I had a moment like that the other day. Things were simply weighing a bit more heavily on my mind than usual.  I won't say where I was or how I carved out time to write, but I did.  The amazing thing is it's a relatively-quick, no-fail, feel-good solution--every time...
