I got back and re-read the things I can once in awhile. Sad part is written journals, tape recordings and such for me have been lost or destroyed over time since the late 1960's & early 1970. Most of the early on-line forums I belonged to have long since gone off line and even the way back machine is not to great at recovering those lost sites threads. Figure for many of us everything was hand-written and never shared beyond our immediate family or group so there were not even shared copies once the group's folded or we lost contact with those who once made up our groups. That doesn't even touch what we had on one type of computer platform that is no longer supported that we lost, for instance 8.5 inch floppy disk, 3.5 inch floppy disk, 5.5 inch floppy disk, Atari (400 & 800) or Commodore 64 computer systems, etc
I have fragments of notes and journals that probably go back to the early to mid 1990's now and that is about it. Some extracts from forum postings, email exchanges and of course things I wrote in my own word processor pages. Don't do to much of the written or tape recording anymore and still to much old school to do blogs. So yes I go back and re-read those or re-visit dream journals or journey journals to see what I wrote and see what has come to pass or how my analysis and understanding of things have changed. To see how my concepts of symbology has changed or evolved. In some ways to see how the depths of my knowledge has developed or completely dropped idea's I once held about things. In many ways I also tended to spin many of my journeys and revelations into poems or stories so have quite a few of those I re-read.
