Obviously, all of my essays and stories fit on a timeline. But for the things that seem important to me, things that carry some gravitas, I sort them out into menu items so they’re easier to find. Everything else goes here. Prompts, questions, journals and scraps I find in cigar boxes all end up in this pile. Wading through can take time and might be fruitless for you.

You’ll see lots of things with two dates: the first is the subject date. Like when I went to the first grade and got my first school paddling and stole my first kiss…it was 1964. I wrote about it in 2021. You see how it works.  

It’s’ just another way to put everything I’ve written into one place. As I say elsewhere, it’s messy, and I make no effort to clean it up.
