I'm going to put all these pages (as I post them) from my old journal of 1986, into the memoirs category even if the content is (like this one) not exactly memoir. That way I can keep them all together and in order. As you (my dear reader) can see, the content of this one [...]
As an artist, I am moved to express what I feel inside. As a human being, I am asked to honor my connection to others. As a member of a society, I am told to be aware of difference. As an individual among many... I am. --------------------- I am contemplating all that has happened recently. [...]

Sorry dear reader, but I promise to get this fixed before I head out on my vacation. The Daily Brian Will pretty much become a [...]
I'm glad I've decided to post these early attempts at memoir. Reading them now shows me how I've had the desire to tell my story for quite some time.
