Reminiscence and Life Review

Life ReviewThis artwork represents a few significant aspects of Gladys' life story. She worked in the fields as a girl and admired her grandfather who had been a slave. She recalls how the family cared for each other and the enjoyable times they had when traveling by a horsedrawn wagon. After marrying and beginning a family she learned to drive and bought a Cadillac. Now later in life she preaches the gospel on the radio.

The ways in which individuals choose to tell their life stories can be seen at different levels on the reminiscence to life review dimension of the life story cube. This ranges from a more random recall of life experience (reminiscence) to a more evaluative focus on one's life (life review).
