THE DIARIES OF PAUL K LYONS - 1974

1974 was the year I began keeping a regular journal. I left home in June that year to travel. My journey took me across Asia. I arrived in Darwin in December, just in time for Cyclone Tracy.

I wrote my journal entries in a desk diary, which allowed me half a page for each day (but many entries are extended with continuations on blank pages in the earlier part of the diary). The hand-writing is cramped, and nearly illegible at times, and the writing itself shows little attention to grammar or structure. I have, however, tidied up the grammar slightly. (In particular, the journal now reads as though it was all written in the present tense. It wasn't. It was written in a jumble of the present and the past, without any consistency. This may be because, at the time, I tried to write each entry as though it were being recorded on the specific journal date, even if, in reality, that day had passed by some time ago.)
