A Few of Your Favorite Things

image001

This week I’m inviting EVERYONE to “lighten up” a bit with Better Endings. Our topic is CHILDHOOD MEMORIES.  Let’s use this week for us to review and recover some of the happier moments of childhood. That’s not to say that children’s lives are always happy, of course. But “to look through the eyes of a child” is to discover …well… IS TO DISCOVER!!

I’m going to jump-start this week by posting what is normally a Tuesday’s writers’ prompts list today. I invite you to remember this week, whenever you can, to look at life through the eyes of a child—your own Inner Child, or if you prefer, one of your own or known children.  How would a situation look differently to you as a Child? What would matter, more or less?

So, here’s a list of topics that you can write about, talk about, or use for active contemplation/ imagination. Poems, artwork, photographs and music are also very welcome! I invite all comments or insights, and I will publish your stories or artistic expressions if you’d like to send one in! With my own childhood heart and eyes “Wide open”, I’ll share EVERYTHING (within polite reason) that you would like to pass along!

  • Friendships
  • Pets
  • Trips
  • Family
  • Creative play
  • Places:  woods, derbies, horse farms,  trees
  • Bicycling    (or: tricycles, pogo sticks, go-carts, stilts, skateboards…)
  • Reading (favorite characters, favorite series)
  • Writing (diaries, poems, Mother’s Day cards)
  • Movies
  • Plays
  • School
  • Scouts
  • Music
  • Sports
  • Clubs
  • Treehouses
  • Horses
  • ANYTHING ELSE that comes to you!

Since those of us now adults sometimes are forgetful of what we knew so much better as a child—how to exercise the Imagination with Freedom and how to Explore EVERYTHING–then remembering our Child’s viewpoint can definitely bring Better Endings to us Now!

Have FUN!

  4. Heya! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established website such as yours
    require a massive amount work? I’m completely new to blogging however I do write in my diary every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

    Thankyou!

    • Blogging is a fun process. It is in its own genre of a mixture of narrative and images. Some more artistically inclined include photography, video, music, and/or poetry. It is a worthwhile way to explore and probe specific topics, and there is a wonderful community of Bloggers to discover!
