I’ve kept a journal since 1974. I have a pile of books. Sometimes I can check out dates and stuff. I don’t write every day or even every month, but regularly. It’s fun to go back and read.
I’ve given them to my daughter, actually for my granddaughter, who isn’t even conceived yet. I want her to know me.
I kept a diary the year I was sent to live with my uncle in Utah. I so wish I had that to know what I was like as a teenager.
I think everyone should keep a journal.]]>
I really would like to know how much stuff cost, a description of everybody I met during the day, etc. Instead, I have 500 pages about my feelings. Very embarassing.]]>
