MUSIN’

October 17, 2009

I have decided that I am going to just write about anything that comes to mind.

One of the things that comes to my mind today is “Diary.”

I have tried through the years to keep a diary but have never been able to be consistent with it.  I have started a dozen times but just never kept up with it.  I know people who have and they can go back and tell you what they did on any given day.  I was talking to an old friend of mine, Carl Hecker, earlier this year before he passed away.  He told me the day he did the funeral for my sister who passed away in 1979.  He gave me the date, place, her name and everything.  I did not even remember the date.  So I envy people who keep records like that.

I don’t really know the amount of good that would do me, to have all those things written down.  I guess I could sit in my chair in my old age and relive many of those things thought to be important at the time.  But alas, it is not to be.

I might be afraid i would use it like a woman in Missouri I knew.  Evidently she kept a daily diary most of her life and she would go into those books, find those things she wanted to remember and remind the people who had wronged her during her life.  What a waste.

So I didn’t do that.  I still have some of the notes I did keep, and it is interesting to look at the once in a while but there isn’t anything of much significance and I can remember the things that matter anyway, at least for now.
