I keep looking at the maps in the Timothy Ely book, and something kept nagging at my brain from ancient times (you know, 1999). I pulled out one of my journals from back then, and saw it was as I remembered - I did try to draw a map in my journal, which represented my life at the time. I think I might have even had Ely's book in front of me back then for inspiration.
I was not pleased with my drawing back then, but it doesn't look too bad to me right now. Hard to believe so much time has passed.
