Author Andra Watkins says, “Make a Memory is a movement, a challenge to turn I wish I had into I’m glad I did in 2015.”
When Andra asked me about a time I’d made a memory I was moved to share this piece about spending time with my Granny when my Mom was dying. You can read it here.
And now I’m looking for ways to make more memories with people I love. Besides making the memory another sweet thing about this experience is that in writing it down I got to experience it again — the sad and the happy, of course — and now I have it to return to.
Andra’s memoir, Not Without My Father: One Woman's 444-Mile Walk of the Natchez Trace, has just come out. Somehow she finds the time to launch a book and generously share her website with fellow writers and humans. I guess it’s true when you’re doing what your heart wants you can find seemingly unlimited energy stores.
Additionally, I am so pleased that Andra found me through my guest post on Darcie Cameron’s Belle of the Carnival site! The Internet is a strange and sometimes wonderful place.
It's me, Jennifer Bernice (rhymes with "Furnace": it was my Granny's name) Sutkowski
