“Leaving a Legacy: Writing Down Memories”

“Leaving a Legacy: Writing Down Memories,” by Susan Lynn Reynolds (Best of Life, Fall 2008).

“I’ve been keeping a diary for thirty-three years and write in it every morning. Most of it’s just whining, but every so often there’ll be something I can use later: a joke, a description, a quote. It’s an invaluable aid when it comes to winning arguments. 'That’s not what you said on February 3, 1996,' I’ll say to someone.”– David Sedaris
