i remember...

A little background for this post–

Earlier this year, I got an idea that I wanted to start writing stories about myself. These stories wouldn’t be for anyone in particular. Mostly just for me.

I don’t know if I was feeling nostalgic or feeling the need to let the universe know that I am here or if it is just a desire to be a renaissance woman…I don’t know. But I knew that I wanted to put to paper my stories.

So I found a book at the library. I liked it so much I bought a copy for myself. It’s called “Old Friend from Far Away” by Natalie Goldberg. It’s full of writing exercises to help you “find your voice.”

One exercise that I really, really like is called “I Remember.” You spend 10 minutes and just write. Don’t edit yourself. Don’t think too hard. Just write down things you remember.

So I did.

I have several stories..all of them silly…but very fun for me.

Anyway, I’ve started doodling some of my memories and thought I would share.

Does anyone else remember roller skates and skate keys? I always had my skate key tied to an old shoestring and kept it around my neck when I skated. You had to keep it handy because your skates came off. A lot! And you would have to sit down and use the key to get them back on your shoes!
