My Fall 1986 Curriculum Vitae
Bill Long 1/9/12
Dated December 15, 1986
One of the tasks I have given to myself is to form some kind of understanding of my past and the person who has walked through that past. We are certainly the product of parents, family of origin and individual experiences but we also have our own unique engine or bundle of desires and inclinations that are tweaked, cultivated, ignored or celebrated throughout life. In order for me to know myself, then, I here put online my resume at age 34. This tells the reader not only what I had done by age 34, but it also tells you what I chose to remember or think was important about my professional life. When combined with a number of other markers, such as the photo in this essay or the essay entitled the pleasures of memory, this vita gives a basic understanding of skills, desires, ambitions at formative stages of my life. I put this resume together almost exactly 25 years ago (today is January 10, 2012 and the resume/vita is dated December 15, 1986).
