The story is everything, tell the story, write it down, capture what happens, what you did, what you said, create your narrative, tell your tale.
I met a young boy who had a wonderful way with words, so imaginative – do you write stories at school? I asked. No, he didn’t. I got the impression he wasn’t that interested. You should! Write your stories! You should!
Husband began to write his biography, the stories of his life. I reminded him to write more, so many funny and interesting escapades, the early days of rock and roll, life in Cornwall – write it!
April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
