I wanted to explain this feature further. Back in 2013 I had another Blog on WordPress called asparagus speaketh. Essentially like this, I wrote and created art under the guise of the age I was remembering. So, if I was writing about something that happened when I was in elementary school, I would draw with my less dominant left hand in crayon. This blog lasted only a few years because I had an internet stalker. An old college roommate that would offer lengthy comments about how inauthentic I was and always ending his rant with a passive aggressive God Bless.
When I started this blog in 2018, I decided to do an ongoing on Fridays feature written in diary form in the guise of the time period the 1970’s to present day.
The name Dana Myttis Hedrew is a partial anagram of my full name Matthew David Snyder. Initially it was just random memories but the more I wrote I discovered that it became more so about my friendships and relationships with people than about me being the focus. I like that it went in that direction, and will continue to do so sometime in 2021.
There are only two more to be posted for 2020, while I collect my thoughts and plan who I further want to write about. This feature has been pretty hit or miss. I was curious to know in the comments if y’all have been digging it or not.
