    Do you keep a journal of your gigs and general activities?

    ...as a player?

    My father used to hunt a lot, back in the 70s and 80s, and he kept a journal where he wrote about most of his accomplishments, including a safari for Buffaloes.

    I do the same, got a black Moleskine (yes, Willie, it was a Hemingway reference) and have been documenting my gigs and the stuff that catch my eye along the road.

    Since I’ve always wanted to “write a book” but never had a good idea of what to write about, this is close enough, I guess.

    What a great idea!

    I don’t keep a journal of gigs - but should have while I was still gigging. I do have every set list from the last ten years or so....

    I used to to keep a journal of mountain bike rides/training sessions back when I was hardcore into that and was racing. Fun to go back and read that stuff 20+ years later...

    i currently keep a journal of time we spend at our cottage/lake house - inspired by a cottage neighbor in his late 90s who did the same before he passed - about happenings on the lake. I detail not only what we might have been doing any given time, people visiting, but the weather, the water level, forest fire conditions, the bugs and anything unusual that might be going on. Got about 10 years worth of data - about 500 entries.

    I keep it on the bathroom wall at each dive I play in...
