Memoir Writing Prompt: Who are You Missing Today?

My precious Uncle Charlie passed away last night. I remember him when he first dated my Aunt Marolyn. As a kid, I thought he was funny, happy and . . . he liked me. Because of my intense love for my Aunt Marolyn, I couldn’t imagine anyone more perfect for her. They made each other […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Rescue Dog Owners Unite!

My husband fell in love with our one-eyed rescue dog online. Even though Lacey had been at the shelter for a month, he rushed right over—afraid she would be gone soon. When I got home and realized my birthday present was a one-eyed dog, I had my doubts about her. However, within a few minutes, […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What Winter “Fun” Do You Remember?

Memoir Writing Prompt: I called my brother today who’s trying to stay warm in his cottage in the Berkshires. The zero degree weather has led him to exhausting his entire wood supply in the two weeks he has been there. He’s ready to return to Miami tomorrow. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, he and I […]

Memoir Prompt: Are You Living Life in the Positive Lane?

Memoir Prompt: I received a phone call yesterday morning from the nursing home to say my ninety-six-year-old mom had tried to get out of bed by herself in the night and fell. Vitals were taken and Mom told them she was fine. I had to see for myself. When I reached Mom’s room, I said, […]

Memoir Prompt: Consider Positive Intentions

Only three days into 2018. How are you doing on that New Year’s Resolution list of yours? Has it been revised to a New Year’s Intention list yet?

Your Tasty Recipe: Worthy of Passing to Next Generation?

Happy 2018 to all. I read a friend’s blog this morning and smiled at her use of New Years’ Intentions. I like that. If an “intention” doesn’t work out, at least I haven’t failed at not meeting up to my “resolution.” For my first intention of the new year, I intend to blog more with […]

Green Free Library: My Old Friend

This facebook picture of my hometown library this morning brought such a warm nostalgic feeling to my soul. As a young teenager, I spent many after-school hours here in complete quiet because the librarians demanded silence. Whispers were acceptable, but any more than a whisper brought steely glares from those in charge. However, that silence […]

The Argument for the Oxford Comma

I’m in the middle of a freelance editing job and the argument for/against the Oxford comma rears its ugly head once again. The Oxford comma was first seen in England in 1905 and agreed to by Strunk’s edition of The Elements of Style in 1918. The Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) still recommends its use. Some grammarians, […]

Words of Wisdom from a Very Special Friend

I met Jean Tate Howard just as she turned a very young 84 years. She was one of my first Legacy writing students. She wrote and spoke much wisdom into my life and into the lives of the other students in my class. The ladies from that first class would not stop writing and after […]

Memories Triggered

The busyness of life has taken me away from my writing for a while. However, my ponderings never stop. The simple things of life bring so many opportunities to marvel at God’s creations and goodness. As I helped my 94-year old mom back into bed this morning, the workings of the human mind made me […]
