A Life in Lists

As a writer, I enjoy how words are put together. I am also struck by the power of lists, stripped of adjectives and verbs, leaving the reader to wonder, and ponder, (if interested) why?

Some of these lists are personal, some capture a moment, some an era. I am struck how with some, one word resonates far beyond any phrase, sentence or paragraph I could possibly have written by way of explanation.I have resisted the temptation to explain, the words speak for themselves. In part I offer this as an alternative autobiography:
