I’m giving myself a pat on the back! I’ve actually kept a diary going since 1984! That was when I found myself cooped up in a factory south of
In spite of the daily struggle to make ends meet, I managed to write something in the book. At the same time my financial condition started to pick up again. I had our family owned old ‘Olivetti’ type-writer but I couldn’t do much with it. Every time I made a mistake it was a tedious job correcting it. I often thought how nice it would be if someone invented a writing device we could write and make corrections just by moving the text around or erasing it and filling up with the corrected text. I hadn’t realized it then, I was actually thinking about a personal computer, which came into existence several years later. So, in 1992 I bought my first PC and started my own education in its usage. In 1994 I continued my diary in Microsoft Word. So I like to dream. I often think most of my dreams actually come true.
I’m still counting my blessings.
