Write Your Story #1

If you don’t write your story, who will?  Prior generations often wrote long letters that captured the important or memorable moments in their lives.  Future generations discovered what prior generations thought, felt, and cherished, from letters that were tied in a ribbon and stored in a box.

I’m not telling you to write your autobiography, a missive of assorted facts; but instead write a collection of short stories, a memoir of events you cherished, of the emotions you felt and the person you are.

Do it now while your mind is agile and the memories are fresh. Do it now before you mind becomes flaccid and your stories are no more than a phantom in the wind.
