Write it Down



So many times, I've heard people say, "I really need to write that down for my grandchildren." It is a shame that when an old person dies, a whole library of knowledge is lost if  their stories were not written down.  I think the trouble with a lot of us is we just don't know where or how to start.

Here is one easy way to get started.  Last week, my friend, Tipper, at  Blind Pig and the Acorn shared a beautiful poem and the template she used to write it.  If you click on the template, there are instructions on writing a poem about "Where I'm From".

I would love for all of you to use this template and tell us where you are from, especially those of you who grew up in the same place I did.  Don't worry, you will not get a grade! :)

My granddaughters adore their great-aunt JoAnn, who tells them funny stories about their Poppy when he was a little boy.  JoAnn has written a notebook of stories for them, a treasure for when our memories fade.  

I'm planning to post my poem from this template on Wednesday.  Feel free to send me yours, and I'm put them all on here.
