how do you eat a mountain?

...or something like that... "one bite at a time".

so, my mom & brother & other brother have all gently (some more gently than others) suggested that i write a book about something that's going on in my life. not a bad idea, really. i love to write, and my mom says if i write a little every day it will be done in a year. she's right, too. but i am so overwhelmed with the actual goings-on, that i can't really bring myself to do the writing. i am being brave about lots of things - maybe i should just buckle down and be brave about this, too. we'll see....

i think you should write about your favorite subject. me (obviously).

I think if you started writing you would find it a stress reliever ... it is something that puts you in the 'zone' MUM

andrew, is that you leaving me cheeky comments?

Writing is a lot of effort. Maybe you could instead do an interpretive dance, recording just a few seconds a day, to express your experience. Or take a picture of the facial expression elicited by each day and make a flip-book out of it...
