My Life and Times

In 1954, I began writing in my journal. I did my writing mostly using cursive. As the years passed and I headed to college, I took a speech course and wrote some of my journal entries using the phonetic alphabet. During the years I was taking French, I wrote some entries in French. From 1954 to 1965, I wrote almost every day. However, beginning in 1966, when I was twenty-eight years old, I began to write sporadically. I would write only when something happened that I wished to remember. That sporadic writing continued until around 2006 when I decided to type into the computer all of the previous writings and continue with my journal writing by typing and saving to the computer. The year is now 2017, and I write every day. Each morning, I read what I wrote on that particular day and relive that memory. For example, on May 2, 2014, Dimitris and I watched “Tora! Tora! Tora!” and got Blizzards at the Dairy Queen. On this day in 2016, we were in Athens, Greece, and met our Dutch friend, Remco. Every once in a while, someone asks me when some event occurred. Usually, I can do a search and come up with an answer. My journals are almost as good for information as an iPhone.

    I honoured to be mentioned in your journals. Actually, this day I’m in a Kibbuts south of Jerusalem, as a part of a round trip!
