I finally decided to pull out my journals.  (I have been journaling off and on since I was a kid.) I’m not sure why I didn’t do it sooner.  I have been working off of very fuzzy memories of some pretty important life events, that I had actually chronicled at the time.  I think, no wait, I know I was afraid to read them.  It’s easier to gloss over everything.  I remembered bits and pieces and let my imagination fill in the rest.  It made the story smoother and less jarring for the reader.

Now I’m faced with the reality of what actually happened in the winter of 1999. 

I didn’t write everything down.  There are some pretty important things that happened later on that are not journaled.  In fact, I have three completely empty journals that were given to me as gifts.  But now a huge piece of the puzzle that I only semi-remembered is in place and the shell of a story I had created for myself has been shattered.  I now believe that in the book, the events following the winter of 1999 will unfold more clearly. 

And to think, I only pulled out the journals to see what year I went to Italy.  It seemed like a storyline that might give my book a little texture.
