Liam Collins: Dear diary... the dying art that gives honest insight into our lives
After coming across a discarded diary in a skip, Liam Collins wonders if he will ever know how the story ends
Last Friday morning a select few were closing the book on 2015. 'The few' are those who still keep a diary. Many of us have a diary to record meetings, appointments and the general trivia of our lives. But for others a diary is a way of recording the moments they cherish - from the mundane to the extraordinary - moments that are soon lost in the mists of time and failing memory.
For others they are a form of therapy.
That is why I always believe in reading other people's diaries.
