Revisiting, Reminiscing

It used to be typical for me to look back at my old writing and journals, but I realize the more of a self-superior middle-aged broad I become, the less patience I have for the youngster I once was.  Still, it's interesting and probably instructive to do so, and definitely so to read about someone else doing so, particularly given a somewhat different artistic history.

In many ways, the idea of really taking much of a look at the writings of my younger days tempts me to simply burn it all.  Never have gotten around to that, but sometimes there is a touch of dread - what if this utter junk were discovered after I die?  Heh.

Do you keep your old work?  Do you look at it ... ?

Does it help?  *Grin*

It's good for a laugh, at least. ;)

Hee. I hope you didn't mind me scavenging your post!

Still contempating a bit of lighter fluid and a match, myself ... :)

Hahaha! No, I don't mind. Looking at the cringe-worthy stuff I wrote (and drew) entertains me.
