A few times in my life, I have set aside time to sit down and review my entire lifes journals. The last time I did this was on my 4-month road trip after finishing my PhD in 1991. I think the journals took up three or four file boxes in the trunk of my car at the time. As I plowed through and contemplated my life experience to that moment, I took note of things that I had written that I particularly enjoyed. Here is a selection of what I compiled. Those that are special favorites are highlighted.
Technical note: Dates in the left-hand column are in Ennex date format of yyyy mm dd, with a range shown by short ellipsis of ... So 1978 10 11..12 means October 10 through 11, 1978 and 1978 10..11 means October to November 1978.
By the way, it became clear to me then in 1991 that that would be the last time I would do a complete review of the journals. They have become just too voluminous to be worth the effort anymore. But Im very glad for the times that I have done it because it is a wonderful way to get to know ones self better. Ill still be doing periodic reviews of portions of the journals.
