Memories Swirl Like Time Ribbons in My Mind
Memories are real and like ribbons that flow from today and connect me to my past. They’re tangible and unlike my dreams worth so much more.
I dreamed last night that I was back in my school library. Students were lined up around the school waiting to check out books, and water was rising in the library about to wipe all of us away.
I remember the laughter of one of our booktalk sessions during afternoon book club. I invited our local youth librarian from the public library and an English teacher from each grade level to make up our panel of Booktalk Idol judges.
One of them pretended to be Randy, “Hey, dog, that was good, but maybe you could have given us a more emotional scene to draw us in.”
We laughed and ate snacks. I gave away a basket of prizes to the booktalk winner.
Now, I am a blogger and write about books, spiritual poetry, my walk with Jesus, and lessons I am still learning daily in my retired life. My blogging is not a job although I probably make it seem like one. My blogging is therapy. After all my therapist told me to start blogging as an outlet from my pain.
Blogging memories, scenes, connecting ribbons in my mind: past, present and future. My blogging creates these mind webs of memories and helps me stay sane when the pain gives me nightmares.
This post is my sixth entry for THE MARCH SOLSC! #SOL16.
