Why do I Blog?

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010
I have gotten this question from time to time and I decided to post my answer here.   My Grandma passed away in 2004 and a couple years before she had written her memoirs and was fascinating to read everything she did during her life and all she had experienced and remembered.  My Life my cousin Miranda had helped her put together a recap of tons of things from her life and it got me thinking about all the things I do and experience and also how poor my memory is.   My grandmother had recapped her life when she was 90 years old and I can't remember much of what I did last year but I know I do and see quite a bit.  Well I decided to start documenting my life here and I am actually pretending I have an audience but I know that nobody reads this hardly and I think I am more doing it for my kids and my grandkids to share and be able to look back at my life.  I would not do a good job keeping a journal but this is pretty much my journal and tracks my life from where I eat to what I do to what I am feeling.  It is actually very interesting to look back and read things I did and how I was feeling. Well I want to thank my Grandma for sparking the idea and I hope to continue to do this till I am an old man and who knows,  maybe one day someone will actually be interested in what I wrote.  For now I will continue writing to cyberspace and share what is going on.
