    Jo Ann -It\’s interesting following these lists!I recall similar projects when I\’ve been inpatient at the hospital. They really put a focus of daily journaling and I always dreaded it as I didn\’t want anyone getting a hold of it and "trying to figure me out". I\’m not saying that\’s what you\’re doing here – just that it\’s what it reminds me of. Hope you\’re doing okay, you\’re often in my thoughts.-Stephen
