DESCRIPTION

L.W. (1897–1979) kept diaries for 20-odd years. Within this volume is a word-for-word copy of an L.W.'s last diary. Line breaks are accurate.

You may notice that some words are obscured. For privacy, black bars cover proper names. Other obscured areas include: daily temperature, some numbers, stray sentence parts, & unsolved abbreviations.

Black bars abridge the text throughout, condensing entries to scenery & verbs. These filters attempt to capture a compact view of an aged life, considered apart from particulars—just the successive activity of an exhausted existence.
