On...Commitment.

I was reading about how Nicole Kidman burnt all her old journals...which caused me to open and flick through one of my old ones...I came across this excerpt:

Sometimes certain words will conjure up strong images - sometimes full on video clips in my mind....whenever I hear the word COMMITMENT I imagine being a cockroach or a mouse/rat scurrying on the kitchen floor or through pipes and along skirting boards where human hands can't reach them. Occasionally the rat gets caught by its tail picked up, stared at, it stares back blanky and then wriggles away again, making for the nearest warm nook and cranny to take shelter...

So what are your thoughts on burning journals? Would you do that with yours? I have a bunch and I have contemplated burning them. The other day I thought about writing a memoir based on them for Boo when she's older. I don't know what to do with them.
