Do you enjoy reminiscing with schoolmates about the old days and wish you had some memorabilia from that time in your life to share with your family and friends?
Many folks think that memorabilia is just pictures and souvenirs, but some of the best are written memories. They can tell the whole story, share feelings, give insights to how things were and allow the reader to associate them with their own experiences.
I encourage each of you to make your own memorabilia by putting your memories in writing, even if it's just a few paragraphs on slips of paper. Even if you only do it every now and then, you will have something your children will cherish. You may be surprised at how much joy a memory can bring, as you relive it while putting it to paper.
Start slowly by making a list of your favorite memories, then pick one or two to start with and proceed from there. If you try to write a book, it will soon turn into a chore and may never get done.
Since we attended Sequoyah at different times and had different perspectives, even identical lists will trigger different memories for each of us. I know my list isn't complete, so help me out and send me a copy of your list.
