Kind of Time Travel-Freaky Friday.

You may have felt a feeling similar to the time travel-Freaky Friday feeling - if you are patient enough and curious enough to look through old photo albums of the type which have been carefully assembled over the course of many years -  

Reading a diary, travel journal, or autobiography might convey the same transferred feeling.

What would it be like - I often wondered - to be inside the mind of my cat... but I've yet to experience that.  For that matter, what is it like to be of any frame of thought other than one's own.  Too, there's the subject of recall - and how well you are able to remember even your own experiences.

In offering you this idea, my point is - it's an interesting sensation to even briefly understand someone else's perspective.  Hence, the Freaky Friday reference:  it was one of my favorite pre-teen reads; a mother and daughter completely switch places (something else I've yet to experience).

My Freaky Friday-time travel feeling transpired thanks to my archiving/pack-ratting ways - which preserved a smorgasbordic-cornucopic-encyclopedic collection of drawings/tearsheets/thoughts and observations from my teen/young adult life in the 1980s. 

I cannot convey to you what it would be like to live the life of my cat, or even my mother, but I can let you have a peek inside my 80s brain... via a book.
