We all know the years fly by.
Back in the 80’s I was wondering what the year 2000 might be like.
We are now 20 years past that.
I have been keeping a personal blog (DayOne) since May 2014.
I never believed I would keep it going.
Every day without fail.
Maybe because it is on my phone.
And I’m always on my phone.
It allows me a search facility to pin down certain events, places, people that are vague, until it brings up the detailed journal page.
It is my retrievable, detailed memory.
Stored in the cloud as backup to my brain.
It offers a peek at what I’d written 1 year back, 2 years back etc on the same day as I may be writing today.
“Can it really be 2 years ago?” I sigh ….
Memories captured, neatly and clearly (well to the best of my ability).
It is, essentially, a book of my recent life.
Well since May 2014.
And when I read it, at random, complete with photos I have attached to the relevant journal entry, I marvel at what I have experienced.
I smile often and sometimes cry just a little.
But I remain grateful that I am blessed with being able to keep on writing my book …
And still looking back in wonder at an incredible journey ….
