“Are you Chinese?!”

Day 25, Saturday: Something someone told you about yourself that you’ll never forget (good or bad). This will be short because I am at the cabin. The first time I met my childhood best friend was when she moved in across

Mud puddles and mud baths

Day 18, Saturday: Tell a story from your childhood. Dig deep and try to be descriptive about what you remember and how you felt. A long summer thunderstorm came to lift and break the streak of heavy humidity and heat, leaving

The temptation

Day 13, Monday: Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be. Dear Bev, our childhood neighbor, I am sorry for every flower we picked, every piece of birch
