Honoring a Memory

You never know what things will stand out for a person. Maybe a song sends them back to childhood (say, anything from the 80s). Or perhaps smelling Old Spice reminds them of sitting with their grandfather.

Or they could sit in a movie and struggle with buried emotions.

I wrote this in response to a prompt for World Freedom Day, but it works equally well for Veterans Day: Fourth of July, Optimus Prime, and Family.

For everyone who’s served, my thanks. You’re seen and remembered.

I speak the thoughts rattling around in my brain, sharing topics I think other people want and should hear (or are afraid to talk about themselves). I bring my personality and quirky state of mind to everything I write; serious topics shouldn't be devoid of humor. That includes my blog and freelance work (part of my charm). I've been writing for as long as I can remember. It's a source of solace and enjoyment for me. I'm lucky enough to call what I love my career - so it's NOT work! I live in Virginia with the Minions (four cats and a Greyhound) and my wonderful husband, who ensures I stay fed - no cereal for dinner - and as close to sane as I can get.
