Supposedly when C.S. Lewis became a Christian, he quit keeping a journal. He thought it was too self-centered.
C.S. Lewis wasn’t a woman.
And journal or no journal, the man wrote down his thoughts. There’re a lot of men out there, who over the course of thousands of years, have done the same thing.
I’m not gonna hold it against them.
Let the men become famous. The women will carry on, without fame or glory, bearing witness to the fire of the holy human lifespan. We’ll gain wisdom with our silence.
We’ll find healing in the hidden words.
