Day #27 Word Prompt – Spark

The middle of the week is here and I’ve spent the beginning of the week cleaning out old storage boxes. Yes, when I have a deadline or have a book to write my house gets clean like any other writer. Right now, it looks more like a disaster but dusting off the inside of boxes gave me bouts of laughter when I found old photos. Some people in my family shared in the memories when I texted them in dated hairdos and clothing.

One thing I noticed through the years explains my closet and why I have every size inside. Let’s just say that some of the photos made me cringe. There’s no hiding my big cheeks and rounded features before I lost weight. I almost died laughing when I saw my husband’s childhood photos in his squared 70s glasses even though he wasn’t born back then.

I have a hard time parting with memories but I wanted to make room for new ones. Who knows why I decided to keep scraps of paper. After hours of organizing and reshuffling boxes, I’m glad I took the time to go through them. Old photos of family members who passed away now sit on shelves. I bought that postcard and Eiffel Tower to suspend the memory.

Today’s word prompt, Spark, goes along with a bucket of memories. Sometimes going through old photos can help you remember that date. A time when you passed a stranger on the street. Sparks can be moments in your life. A touch, an idea that changes your life. Open yourself up and take out one memory at a time.

Then, write for 5-10 minutes. Or, you can draw for 5-10 minutes.

My posts are Monday through Friday.
