I keep a what's known as a dream diary. Should I have a dream that I wish to remember, jotting it down as soon as I wake certainly does the trick. This has helped me in writing poetry and developed some of my favorite short stories.

One place I worked at 20+ years ago we staffers had to do journal entries about how each of our clients handled their days and whether they had mood changes or not. The setting was a group home for individuals under varying degrees of mental retardation who were being socialized to adjust to a life akin to societal norms and it was operated by an organized group of concerned parents and guardians who were able to receive partial compensation for expenses encountered housing, training, feeding from state, local, and county sponsors.

I would read the usual entries other staffers entered and, Gloryosky, what a snooze. Always routine. Always straight line with minimal variation. Now I won't go into the politic(s) of cover up re journal entries to placate both state inspector(s) and home managers (bureaucracies....so much cya, cyb it's damn scary) when certain clients would act out and do some interesting things to other clients that given same circumstances would incarcerate ABs had he / she / they attempted the same actions in this setting. All my accurate journal write-ups describing such graphic activities between clients always got shit-canned by the managerial higher ups so no, not going there.

Our home had the state's oldest living (at the time) member who had Down's. Interesting individual, well liked by staff and other clients alike. Other staffers would chart and post this client's progress: ate, slept, watched TV, interacted briefly...........you get it, not very exciting, mundane. Well, I thought it was time for a narrative change for some of these folks so I would post uplifting, albeit off the wall endearing comments as long as their well-being was stable, positive. For this client since he passed gas so often (meds made him do it) I wrote that the home was having issues vetting / fielding inquiries from emissaries representing India, China, Bolivia, Chile, and other countries forward thinking enough channeling methane gas for home heating rather than contributing to the problem of flatulence re global warming that we were going to have to get gubernatorial assistance rather than rely on our company hierarchy complying with certain regulations foreign and domestic exporting.

As long as their daily outcome didn't differ from their previous norms I wrote up some of the other clients also using uplifting albeit imaginative scenarios.......did make for interesting reading, sure wasn't monotonous or a boring read like everyone else's. Ninety-five percent of what we staffers wrote into these journals was never reviewed by anyone except the manager and her / his assistant. The man I worked for tolerated my entries as long as I stayed accurate about client well-being. Unfortunately, he left for a better paying position doing the same thing. When his replacement arrived she reviewed some of the staffers most recent journal entries. I was advised to cease the entertainment aspect as the state positively, absolutely had NO sense of humor, zero, zip, naddah.....or else......which I did.

Yes, I have an online blog and I write different posts there sometimes But that happens really rare, to live your life is more interesting for me than describing it in posts
