At times. I deleted most of my hubs a year or so back. I have been in the cauldron sifting through the dust looking for possibilities. What is interesting is I realized how much was added to the impact of the article with the imagery and other capsules. I kind'a missed them not being there when I reread them.
I have reread papers I wrote for college work too. I get stuck in thought with those as they cause great pondering. Since essay in nature they usually were explanation, expository, and persuasion essays. The pondering is the position I have today contrast / compare that of the time I wrote the paper.
Interestingly some I changed my viewpoint since that writing experience. Some I did not. Some I realized were a great impact on me forming my person as I am today. Then it was like visiting an old and dear friend chatting things over. I liked the new experience through rereading as much if not more than the original researching and writing. I would smile when sitting down later to a glass of ice tea. I felt a sense of peacefulness.
