Yo S,

You gotta bust out the inkjet printer and the camera for this one...PICTURES...PICTURES...PICTURES..."A Thousand Words...." Hook that up and cut down on the prose time...(You can always fill in the text later...)

Big Smiles - 22

P.S. What side of the brain do you write with? Better yet...can you take pictures with that same side...

Nice... I like that idea. While I don't have kids, (only nieces and nephews), I could see myself starting one as well.

My memory, though, isn't "impressionistic". (BTW: Is that a real thing? Because, if not, I think you just coined an hilarious new term. If it is, well... just goes to show how much I know! :) Anyhow, I tend to remember a lot of things. Particularly things people say. And I do so going way back, which is both a blessing and a curse, as there are some things I'd rather forget. But one thing with your memory that I can understand is 'the gray staying around longer than the rosy', a trait which I would also like to "return to sender". :)

Kate, there was also a great memory book-type idea on The Happiness Project yesterday-- definitely worth checking out!

And 22-- Pictures would be a great addition to the Memory Book, but for me ease-of-use is key-- so I've decided that my computer organizes my pictures beautifully, which is going to have to be good enough for me!

@Sarah Fain: Thanks for the heads-up. I'll check it out.

I do a journal whenever I travel, on vacation, not business. Restaurants, phone numbers, notes. This time around I was with friends and we kept getting postcards of the different places and writing notes to keep on the journal.. I might make copies of the postcards for them for xmas... but I love the idea of a happiness project for the year.

My Books (with Elizabeth Craft)

  • 'Bass Ackwards and Belly Up' and 'Footfree and Fancyloose' tell the story of four best friends who commit the ultimate suburban sin: putting off college to pursue their dreams.

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
