this has been scientifically proven - that writing uses a different part of the brain than just thnking - and talking uses another part. my T says that it is important and helpful to do all three - think about things, write them out, read or talk through them aloud - hear it yourself (i guess that's four! i never was good with numbers!!) but the point is - you do process things differently with each activity - and all are necessary - and help get a better understanding - and give more insights. it has really worked for me.

As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
