Bring in your personal timeline. It should contain at least 15-25 items, but hopefully will contain more. It can be your personal history measured by one specific detail (all the books you’ve read, all the films you’ve seen that were meaningful, every trip you ever took, every cavity you’ve ever had), or it can be a general timeline of the events of your life. We will begin work on our collective timeline.
