The Diary Project


Stream of Conciousness Poetry Inspired by the Day's Events

Giving Meaning to The Moment

Posted in Reverse Order... or at least, Reverse Year Order.

Though, if you start at the first (the one at the bottom of this page), they link internally all the way to the last post, which is probably located at the bottom of the listing for the current year.

2020 - 01 - A New Year
I believe this project is getting less intensive as time goes on, as I'm skipping whole days fairy regularly, now. But I am pleased with what remains. So, let us assume it is a change for the better.

Virus Watch
A Global Pandemic
These entries focus almost exclusively on the Covid Virus Pandemic and my running thoughts as the situation unfolds.
2020 - 02 - Virus Watch - Week #1: This is a thing.
2020 - 03 - Virus Watch - Week #2: The thing continues.
2020 - 04 - Virus Watch - Week #3: I'm getting used to this.

2020 - 05 - Spring
For the most, the entries in this file pre-date Virus Watch and/or mark its beginnings. Originally, I had planned to keep this file going concurrently. But as it would turn out, a Major Plague Event sort of takes over one's life and captures the mind, leaving room for little else.

Virus Watch
A Global Pandemic... continues
2020 - 06 - Virus Watch - Week #4: Just let it be over, already.
2020 - 07 - Virus Watch - Week #5: Getting My Second Wind.
2020 - 08 - Virus Watch - Week #6: A walk in the park.
2020 - 09 - Virus Watch - Week #7: Game Time!
2020 - 10 - Virus Watch - Week #8: Walkies Be Fun!
2020 - 11 - Virus Watch - Week #9: I tire of this.
2020 - 12 - Virus Watch - Week #10: Entering The Double Digits!
2020 - 13 - Virus Watch - Week #11: The Final Countdown!
2020 - 14 - Virus Watch - Week #12: Let's Change This Up.

2019 - 08 - Same Old Days
The entries are sparser. I am not taking as many long walks, which is primarily how this project started. Nor eating out as much, the secondary cause.

2019 - 07 - House Sitting
Hey! I left it standing, so don't look at me like that.

2019 - 06 - Days of My Life
Just the highlights, if you please.

2019 - 05 - Laugh It Up
In which, I try to track moments of Humour. The result? Comically Bad!

2019 - 04 - Party
It's a party! Woohoo! Weekend Getaway! Yippie! Yowza! Cowabunga!

2019 - 03 - Two Weeks Off
Two weeks to reset the system and figure out which way to go next. So, not normality... but a normality of its own sort.

2019 - 02 - Two Weeks On
Really, just two regular weeks... a slice of my life.

2019 - 01 - Lake Country
It was just supposed to be a quiet weekend in the woods... and it was. Though, I exaggerate about the woods part. More like, heavily forested suburbs.


2018-02 - The Diary Project is Born
Six months of stream of conciousness ramblings organized in a delightful nested outline form.

2018-01 - The Restaurant Project
Things morph. Things change. Originally, The Diary Project started as a sort of Restaurant Review Project. But that seemed sort of boring. So, it didn't last that long. Well, not that long.
