These stories of memoir are the main reason I started this blog. In here, are the stories which may be published at some time in the future, but not at this time. To find stories currently being written, edited and gathered for first publication. In other words, my first book Oo(^_^)y-~ please go to the category entitled, For The Book!

From August 2003 to January 2004, I was living and working in Pearl City but spending much of my time on the north shore. My favorite beach to swim and just hang out during that time was Sunset Beach (or Paumalū) and the beauty and calm I found there, helped me to get through what was [...]

7/17/18: An Early Attempt (page #12)

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 [...]

7/13/18: An Early Attempt (page #9)

Definitely, I'm liking the margin doodle art in these pages more and more. I fleshed out the story in this one (and a few that follow) in this blog last year starting here  in a sequence of several posts which also include the lyrics to a song I wrote many years ago on the same topic. [...]

7/12/18: An Early Attempt (page #8)

Interesting... Reading these pages as I post them. This early attempt at memoir, I can also see my current tendency to go back and forth between the younger self of whom I'm writing, and the "adult" self doing so. So... the voice in which I now write memoir (and my other current writing in this [...]

7/10/18: An Early Attempt (page #7)

Again, I'm enjoying my margin doodles the most. I skipped two pages from this my 1986 attempt at memoir. The ones I skipped were a full page sketch and an attempt at poetry/prose with a few corresponding doodles. Heh... One of those pages I've already used as a featured image for a post in this [...]

7/8/18: An Early Attempt (page #6)

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. Rather than simply journalling what was happening in my life at the moment (something I've learned to like more now than then) my initial impulse when [...]

7/6/18: An Early Attempt (page #5)

I do hope (my dear reader) that you find it as interesting as I do... to be reading these (what I at the time thought of as journal pages) early attempts at memoir. Here is one where I'm beginning to get into what my current self recently wrote here... as my first foray into the [...]
