Where to begin the story...

I'm taking a memoir writing class so I dug out a buried box of my journals dating way way back to 1976. I have been  journaling most of my life. Perusing through them to see if anything seems like a good story to start with because I need to write something to share in class tomorrow. I am thinking of sharing pieces of older journal entries juxtaposed with what's happening now- looking for the seeds I planted way back then that led me here. Will be a good history lesson and walk down memory lane. I have always wanted my life to be exciting and meaningful. This quote by Helen Keller has pretty much been my mantra. "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all" So off I go in search of the beginning of the story. My Cat Casey is ready to jump in too!
