I'm new here; I joined writingforums.org because I'm interested in writing about my life and I want to find a format that reflects how I actually experience my life. I'm a voracious reader, as I assume all of us here are, and my tastes are eclectic - fiction, nonfiction, biography and poetry. My whole life is eclectic - I'm retired from a long career in software design - mostly engineering and biomedical applications and I'm a science geek (AAAS member, former amateur astronomer, etc) but I've also been a painter, photographer, (link deleted by mod) and poet for many years, and in my retirement I've taken up filmmaking and in the pandemic I'm studying music theory and I'm composing music for my videos. (link deleted by mod) I've had many adventures, misadventures, lots of health problems and surgery with more to come. My wife died of cancer after a long and creative struggle in 2012, so when I was diagnosed with an incurable myeloproliferative neoplasm my first thought was "what would Esther do?" So since I have to give myself shots for it I designed a tribal dragon tattoo for my belly so I can remember where I gave my last shot to avoiding repeating spots and creating scar tissue. SO . . . My life is not linear - I connect with my past and my future all day long - one thought triggers another and another and every experience is altered and colored by - and connected to - everything else. I've sporadically kept a journal since the 1980's. My latest Vimeo video is of the stars over Vermont. My previous one is a nude dancer in my studio. I'm fully vaccinated but still high-risk. One of my relatives died of Covid last year and the surreal funeral inspired me to start my most ambitious painting yet. In November I'm going to Namibia to photograph cheetahs, this Saturday another model is coming to my studio. When I return from Namibia I'm having a new thumb built because the CMC joint has disintegrated in my left hand. Will I still be able to paint? My house is filled with art - mine and my friends'. Memories and inspirations. In the middle of the pandemic I got a new girlfriend. I want to write about my life in a way that reflects the chaos, turmoil and pandemonium I experience. I anticipate extensive use of my journal entries, poetry, and art. I'm looking for examples of autobiographies and memoirs that are non-linear, discursive, chaotic, multimedia, magically-real, and yet strongly enough written to somehow wrap the mayhem and tumult into something resembling coherency. Can anyone please suggest some good examples? Thanks in advance!
