16.12.16-Mississauga Diary- went to the Discount store at Dundas-Hurontario and found the adaptor for the European plugs, made a toast with a toaster gifted by a friend in Tripoli, and now have put on the Computer which I had got from Tripoli.
Diary writing- I have been a diary writer for over 33 years, right from the days of Pratap Chowk, Delhi cantonment, when I used to log the number of kilometers run, in how much time , and the subjects studied, what time, and how much revision is required.
Journal writing– A journal is different from a diary-which records day to day events, while a journal expands, analyzes, questions, transforms, specific topics.
Year End Notes-of a Travel Journal
Started the entries in the past week, in the spirit of a joint journal.
MISSSISSAUGA VIEWINGS…as I looked back into the journeys and walks of the year 2016, I remembered by friend from Tripoli- Dr.Moftah Hadeed and how we had gone to the Old Medina of Tripoli and visited Tripolis restaurant. Then in coming months, we came here with different friends. The beginning of the year also saw the start of the Abosita walking program, the scent of fresh sea breeze, in the morning hour, before night turns into day.
GOZO MUSIC…In August this year, recorded this from Gozo Citadel with lovely views of the sea, and the beautiful island of Gozo
BOBBIN LACE at the Citadel
PERPSECTIVE NOTE: Wondering how getting this adaptor, sparked off so many nice memories.
This is one of the joys of diary-journal keeping.
