I've collected a lot of journals because they were so beautiful, and not written in them. Perhaps that's what she did. Or, like the other Marcia said, she wanted Terry to have them so she could write in them, something she wasn't able to do.

I have interviewed Terry Tempest Williams as well, and consider it one the highlights of my life. She sees the future in the present.
