This week I wrote a note to someone I had not really spoken with in 30 years or so. I filled them in on the last 30 years in about 300 words. 10 words a year. I wasn’t really thinking about it, I just said hi and hit the keys.
Actually it was a great exercise to see what came out, what I valued, which was colored slightly by my relationship to them, but still, it was pretty clear. I wrote about my bands and my family-kids and husband, with a nod to some jobs and my blog.
I also mentioned tom’s oscar, because that still blows my mind. Keep it simple
