I know 14 pages is way too much, but there’s another I want to have and so this is a time of decision-making.  I refuse to give up Incest or Dear Downs, tho people run from it like mad. Relief is pure pleasure, and Life Issues can handle so many important things!  There’s really some things I want to share and encourage on “Journal Your Way into Being,” and if I had the time I’d like to share mucho on the Dreams page (I’ve had experience with a public access show on dreams, led a dream group at a mental health center and prison, attended two annual meetings of the International Association for Dreams (at Charlottesville and Santa Fe), attended an ARE weekend workshop on dreams, and taught a creditless course on dreams at O.U.  But there’s no way I can tackle the possible meanings of anothers’ dreams.  (It’s too embarrassing and personally infringing).

I’m revising “Shattered Boundaries,” my novel and could post it as I go along, but I could just tuck that under ‘MY books.”  Let’s see, what is left? Our Shadow Selves–no, I won’t kill that one because sometimes I just use it to think and wonder and try to figure out our human nature.  I could let go of Poet/try as far as my poems are concerned, but I have a few (credited) poems I love by others included, and that leaves “Secrets,” which if anyone ever visited would be revealed as  a place to store new (to me) discoveries from science, so I can refer back to them. For instance, that the left side of the brain is more positive in outlook than the right? Revealed by experimentation.  But I’m 80 and I want to share more, especially about SERENDIPITY–yours and mine, to include not only “coincidences” but more from my life and how it is that an avowed current atheist can feel like she has a guardian angel? (Well, that could be my ISH)..

ANSWER: Start a new page.  Thanks, Blogland, for helping me decide.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.

    I commented, but then I tried to italicize Fallout and the comment disappeared. I wanted to say I think people do read your Incest page but don’t leave comments because, as you’ve said, it’s “such an unpleasant subject.” Still, including it in the context of everything else that’s going on here has to be helpful. You are really shining your light. No wonder you won’t play genealogy with me anymore. I will be keeping an eye out for your Shattered Boundaries revisions if you decide to post them.
