The Tau of Steves: What You Don’t Know Could Fill a Book


March 2019

3/28/19.  Not only are we back, but the Holiday Tau exclusively for Zahn, Winkler, Emma the Baroness and me earns my highest ranking for a TauBit of Wisdom in a long, long time.  And I might add to the exclusion of all the rest of Steves.

Why such a high ranking (the highest)? 

 It reflects my lifelong habit, starting in my early 20s, of journaling with a felt tip pen in hand on note paper and eventually into steno notebooks so I wouldn’t lose the pages as often as I did.  

And, yes if I felt blocked, or cornered or frightened or scared or unsure of myself I’d write and draw my way out.  

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “You feel blocked in an area of life, and you’ll write your way out of it.  Getting your feelings down, if only to be read by you, will liberate you.” Scorpio

In psychology circles journaling was and still is a thing, recognized as a positive self-therapeutic tool.  

It took me through feelings about being thousands of miles away from home in a war.  It helped me make sense of the adjustment of returning to a normal life. 

It took me through a divorce and a bankruptcy. And meeting and marrying Emma the Baroness, the love of my life.  

Through career transitions and major life decisions.  

But, the habit introduced new problems — with so much written, how can you efficiently find something you’ve written?  

Digital tools replaced pen and paper. In fact a version of what I experienced can be read by you.
