I started keeping a daily diary in 1977 and still keep one to this day. In my spare time lately I've been typing up the earliest entries onto my computer, as the diary pencil marks are getting more and more faded. It takes time, as I have to decipher the codes and initials that I used for entries then. These have changed over time. But I've just about finished recording the first 5 years worth. When I read of the things that got me excited, worried and angry 30 or more years ago, it does help get things in perspective! And it's a great memory-jogger, too!
