Notes to myself

Dear you,
Start carrying a pen around with you. At least three times last week you were out walking, and you had both the urge and the opportunity to just sit and write while your daughter sleeps. Take these moments because you will not get them back. Even though your writing has become very scrawly through lack of writing recently, there are times when thoughts and sentiments need to be written, not typed. Be kind to yourself when you realize, yet again, that you have not followed up this thought. It's not a big deal, but you will never regret taking time to write. Remember, we write to remember.
