Andrew Frazier Wood

It's a presumptuous thing, I know, to think about my autobiography when there's so much left for me to do. It's all the more presumptuous to imagine that anyone would care to learn about my background, formative experiences, and recent adventures.

Generally I'm sure that my friends are satisfied to read an occasional Wood Family road trip summary, or to hear about holidays we've shared [these two links lead to collections of every blog post I've written with those tags]. And any Facebook pal can view an album of photographs of me through the years. Still, I thought it might be useful for me to organize some of the autobiographical blog notes I've written. If anything, this collection inspires me to consider: What have I missed?

As time allows I plan to expand (and maybe prune) this collection of links, maybe even to add annotations to help folks interpret my occasionally vague titles. For now, consider this page as a placeholder for a project that, given the topic, will take a lifetime to complete. Have you created a similar space to organize the notes of your life? Send a link; I'd love to see it!
