Mrs Monk sent me this link to the word “Diarium,” explaining the Latin derivation of the word Diary, and perhaps wished to question the Raison d'Ítre of this web site.
Apparently, keeping a Diary, can be cathartic to the writer who may thus be able resolve issues, or matters of conjecture.
That may be so if you are keeping a private diary but when you publish your diary as a journal, you are clearly seeking attention, or otherwise fulfilling a creative urge, that would otherwise be unfulfilled.
It recently came to Mrs Monk’s attention that a bum was discovered in America, who had a voice like a radio announcer, and had in fact been a radio announcer before he fell on hard times. He found himself back in the Hollywood limelight by way of a video blog on, You Tube.
Mrs Monk said that she would have a go at this and then directed me to do so, because the idiolect makes my writing and speech unique, uniquely good or uniquely bad.
