Adding to my history
I spent about two hours today writing stories about my grandparents, parents and some of my best childhood memories. The writing bug really bit into my brain and I found myself sitting at the computer keyboard with my fingers flying over the keys. I almost couldn't type fast enough to record those memories.
Being part of the SP 'family' I've often recorded my levels and times of exercise, a list of what I've consumed during my daily meals and other information that helps me earn more spark points. But recording my memories is as valuable as all those other options.
I want to record my history while I can still remember, type, and even evaluate the meaning of my past. I want to record this most valuable 'oral' record of the activities that made me into the woman that I have become.
Many of my relatives are now deceased. Who will offer that record when I join them in 'paradise?' Perhaps it's the beginning of my own book; maybe it's just some times to revel in the wonders of my life and the loving relatives that presently only exist in my brain's 'eye.'
Iíve already removed from the fire-proof box the deed to the family home that I spent most of my childhood in. It will be examined for another addition to my history. I canít wait to analyze my life from that prospective. Perhaps that will occur during another fast typing session. Tomorrow? Weíll see!
