Title: page 7 of Triste's journal
This paper is made from the pulp of the oak trees thriving throughout the
valley. It is 11 x 8 1/2 inches in size and unlined. It can be fitted
sideways into the spine of a journal or used on its own.
This particular page appears to be directly from Triste's journal. This
particular entry is not dated. It seems to be a long, rambling prose, but
nevertheless Triste obviously felt it was important to write it all down.
"I'm a big fan of symbolism. I write in symbolism, sometimes my actions
are symbolic, etc. The most important thing about this symbolism is that it
be based on reality. I am not symbolic as a way to be fake or pretend to be
something I'm not or feel something I don't. But I also try not to
over-analyze something. Because I tend to write so abstractly, a lot of my
writing can be interpreted in so many different ways, but I always remember
the original reason I wrote it. I also appreciate other people's points of
view on what my writing might mean to them, but I hope that they understand
the meaning I intended when I put pen to paper. I may be long-winded, but
it's almost always easier to express myself in writing. In speaking, I don't
have a lot of time to think. I also like being able to get out everything I
need to get out before someone needs to cut in. Maybe it's a bad habit of
mine. I just try to deal as best as I can and sometimes different situations
require a different way for me to deal with them. I'll sometimes have to
abruptly end a conversation before I spiral downward and no one seems to
understand when I'm overloaded and can't handle anymore. I need time out
sometimes to think and reorganize and cool off. But I'm on a tangent again,
too much on my mind, and I can't sleep again. I'm just so tired."
