Photography: "a term which comes from the Greek words photos (light) and
graphos (drawing). A photograph is made with a camera by exposing film to light
in order to create a negative. The negative is then used in the darkroom to print
a photograph (positive) onto light-sensitive paper.

Poetry: "a form of speech or writing that harmonizes the music of its language
with its subject. To read a great poem is to bring out the perfect marriage of
sound and thought in a silent or voiced performance. At least from the time
of Aristotle's Poetics, drama was conceived of as a species of poetry."

Journal: " "Though a journal may be many things - a treasury, a storehouse,
a jewelry box, a laboratory, a drafting board, a collector's cabinet, a snapshot
album, a history, a travelogue..., a letter to oneself - it has some definable
characteristics. It is a record, an entry-book, kept regularly, though not necessarily
daily.... Some (entries) will be nearly illegible, written in the dark in the
middle of the night.... Not only is it a record for oneself, but of oneself.
Every memorable journal, any successful journal, is honest. Nothing sham, phony,
false...." (Dorothy Lambert from Ken Macrorie's book, Writing to be Read
A journal is a way to keep track of your thoughts about what you read... as well
as what you did on any given day."
