As predicted, this blog isn’t getting too much use. I guess I just don’t have that much to say.
Still, my intention was for this to be a bit of a time capsule that I can look back on when I’m older. Something to remind my senile self of all the fun things I did and interesting things I learned (and since forgot).
The problem with that is there are too many such time capsules already. I post bits of my life on Facebook and SmugMug. I keep interesting writings on Google Docs, Simple Note, or just on my computer. I backed up my old blogs on my computer as well.
And, even scarier, none of these things are future-proof. In fact, quite the opposite: they’re very likely to become inaccessible at some not-too-distant point.
I know the only real solution is to not try to document and remember everything, but that’s just not me. I hate to let the past go, and I long for some way to capture each moment and store it for future enjoyment. I love memories and want to be able to relive them whenever I please.
Right now, I don’t know what the solution is for me. But I suppose I should at least start writing more on this blog. We’ll see how that goes…
