Here’s a quick update on the 50 Day Memory Challenge. I am about to take off for a five hour train ride.
I feel extremely accomplished. I finished my most difficult Elance job yesterday–and the client is very happy with the work. Today, I helped clean my house, spent a good deal of time editing, and applied to a couple new jobs. I feel like Summer is fully underway–which is great considering it’s the solstice today. I just want to edit and read for the next couple days. that would leave me with a smile on my face.
Today’s memory is a strong challenger for one of the saddest memories of my life. The story is about the death of my friend’s seven-month old son. I wrote the memory while at my coffee shop. I teared up quite a bit and did everything I could to hide my tears from the people around me. It’s so strange writing emotional things while in public–like you are the keeper of a secret.
