I’ll be doing some remodeling at Moultrie Creek over the next couple of weeks to bring the site and each of the blogs up-to-date with templates and plugins that take advantage of WordPress’s new features. Please pardon the dust and confusion as things get updated and a fresh look.
Journals and diaries have a unique way of preserving people, places and events. Photographs can provide future generations with a glimpse of the past, and I always take a camera to events important and trivial because I like to have something physical to help me hold on to the precious moments of my life, but the written word is more revealing than an image.
The connection I feel to my grandfather is stronger when I read his travel journal than when I view a photograph of him. Through his journal he communicates with me, even though he has long since ceased to breathe the air I do.
