The thing about history is that it is a byproduct of writing. And while I can orally speak of the remarkable events of our past, I feel that written words serve posterity much better.
Such is the line of thinking that led me to start writing a journal amongst the other things that I write. While I write for a newspaper for a living, as well as having written several books, writing a journal is a new thing to me. Perhaps it’ll turn out to be an adventure. Perhaps it might do well for my mental well-being. But however it might turn out, I’m hoping it’ll at least be amusing.
