We Remember… {Writing Me wrap up}

Writing Me is Bigger Picture Blogs series of writing exercises created to help our community dive deeper into writing, grow creatively, and learn about ourselves and each other. This quarter we wrote from the prompt “I Remember…” and each week we featured one of our community members.

We remembered… 

… quenching fiery sighs with sobs of salty tears the first time my heart broke. {Alita}

… feeling a net below me and possibilities above. {Corinne}

…as we sail on the crystal blue water and finally put him to rest. {Brook}

… memories to which I cling tighter every time I realize he’s gone. {Hyacynth}

…forever-promises, birthed from hard lessons and difficult truths. {Jade}

…being half of something beautiful, and all of something loved. {Sarah}

…pushing you away until you were broken, too, and didn’t know if you could fix me anymore. {Alissa}

…the dream fulfilled. {Adrienne}

… the merry-go-round fondly: as a childhood ride, a teenage conference room and as an aide memoir {Sarah}

…a woman who lived a rich and full life, whose legacy lives on in the multitude of children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. {Stephanie}

…Poetry is voice. {Lindsey}

…Mr. Rogers was right; they did indeed love me into being.  {May}

…not to wallow or to punish but to but to focus the joy of today. The light that has entered and goodness that surrounds us. {Melissa}


Oh how we remembered. Thank you, to all of our community, for participating in Writing Me this quarter. The amount of creativity, of soul and spirit, is astonishing. Thank you.
