Merry Christmas to all my friends and readers.
It’s been now over a year since my last post, but nothing really changed. Just like in your life, I was faced with daily challenges which eventually got solved. I even found the old letters from my friend Harold, and personal notes which I had somehow misplaced. However, now that I found them I am greatly encouraged to resume my writing about his interesting life.
While I was searching through my old documentations I noted that I had absolutely no written records of any kind from my grandparents, or great grandparents. No records about their daily life or the challenges they faced, and for sure not a single note in their own handwriting. This got me thinking how nice it would be if I could read something personal about their life, maybe even about their obligations or their hopes. Considering how easy it is to jot down a few lines for our descendants, I started to design a very simple journal which I called “My Time Capsule Journal”, and my trusted VA published it last week on Amazon.
A friend of mine wrote me the following comment (and I obtained his permission to quote him):
never thought of writing stuff like this down before so it has set me to
thinking. I have a lot of stories, word of mouth, passed down from
grandmothers that will dispensary when I am gone.
elephant who would only work to push wagons out of the mud if he was
bribed with a swig of whiskey and a chaw of tobacco. He later became a
blacksmith and was shot in the back at the dinner table one night. My
other grandmother traveled across the plains in a covered wagon, lived
in a soddy, and a younger brother died from a spider bite. All this was
word of mouth stories I was told as a kid”.
