Dear diary

One of my girls is in the process of cleaning up her house in order to move and build.
Today she was asking for advice on what to throw out.

Should diaries from childhood be kept?


I never throw anything away. My house is testament to that.
Sometimes I think I should.

But then I imagine how amazing it would be for a kid 60 years from now to find my old diary in an attic and wonder about the person who wrote it.
Maybe I read too many books as a kid.

Of course now I no longer write in a diary, it is all online for the world to see.
The Internet has turned us all into exhibitionist introverts.

Maybe I will find those diaries and burn them before anyone reads them….
