Core Story: #reverb10 Day 31

Today’s prompt: What central story is at the core of you, and how do you share it with the world? You see that tree over there? One of these days I’m going to climb that tree. Like my niece shown in the picture here, I’m always picking out the biggest trees to climb. Other kids […]

Gift: #reverb10 Day 30

Today’s prompt: This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable. What’s the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year? Here she is. Baby Girl (my grandniece) was born the day before my birthday this year. I tried to think of other things to talk about for this post, but I just can’t […]

Responsible Adult Act of the Day #reverb10

A couple of days ago, I said that one thing I want to accomplish in the coming year is to trim excess bills (#7 on my list). Today I went to the Comcast office and chose a cheaper cable package, trimming about $40 off my monthly bill. I probably should have canceled it altogether, but […]

Defining Moment: #reverb10 Day 28

Today’s prompt:  Describe a defining moment or series of events that has affected your life this year. What to say? What to say? I’ve already talked about the new baby in the family. I’ve already talked about buying a camera. I’ve probably talked about going on a diet. It is getting harder for me to […]

Achieve: #reverb10 Day 28

Today’s prompt: What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today. I’m starting to feel […]

The little plant that was

Ordinary Joy: #reverb10 Day 27

Today’s prompt: Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year? I think my response to about half the prompts so far in Reverb 10 has been “my camera.” I’ll just keep things simple and go with that again today. Chase Jarvis has […]
