Memories, Scraps and Scrapes from a Chaotic Mind

An attempt at writing my life.
A rearrangement of an essay by Helen Cixous
I have the intention of making my own memoirs, my only problem is a chaotic and dyslexic mind. I was told that a blog is the most effective way to bring together scraps of scribbles made through my life and try to see if they add together to make something cohesive.

I was born, and now I am 60, in between those two events me becoming and me being, I have tried in different ways to keep a journal or even to take notes relevant to what I was thinking at the time. All done in an attempt to make sense of a fragmented existence. I am sure there is a diagnosis for my lack of sustenance and will power apart from laziness and just plain being thick but I can’t find one

So for the purpose of this blog I have gathered together all my existing note taking and will scatter in between my thoughts talk about my memories of a thoroughly dysfunctional family and my part in this. A fragmented story from a scattered mind.
