self-portrait in the present sea

As I noted on the introduction page I have kept a journal under this title for many years.  I began doing so after reading a magnificent anthology of diaries, THE ASSASSIN’S CLOAK.  I have found it to be a useful tool, sometimes providing material for other writing and for memory.  But making a diary public changes everything.  Certainly in the past I have made entries that I would not want to publish.   It will at least enable those who are interested keep track of where I am in the world.

        The journal archives from the beginning of this site in August 2006  to May 2007 and from April 2009 to the present are here.    


       The lost years, May 2007 to April 2009, are found here.
