List of Treasures #Na/GloPoWriMo Day 09-2019

First I wouldn’t open the gift, then I did (What’s in the Damn Box) and it was empty, or so I thought. As I contemplated, I looked again

A Love note was taped to the bottom of the box, revealing the most beautiful box under brown package paper. And then I knew…

This is a box for my photos, the good memories I have collected.

Today’s title: A List of Treasures (photos)

New and Long-time Friends
Favorite Foods
Places we’ve lived
Dream three years in England
Sea Shells
Childhood gadgets
Birthday Celebrations
Random people
Snails crawling on the wall
Aligators and birds
Oceans and Rivers
Spring flowering trees

Now if someone would organize them for me I would be ecstatic.



Our (optional) prompt for the day asks you to engage in another kind of cross-cultural exercise, as it is inspired by the work of Sei Shonagon, a Japanese writer who lived more than 1000 years ago. She wrote a journal that came to be known as The Pillow Book. In it she recorded daily observations, court gossip, poems, aphorisms, and musings, including lists with titles like “Things That Have Lost Their Power,” “Adorable Things,” and “Things That Make Your Heart Beat Faster.” Today, I’d like to challenge you to write your own Sei Shonagon-style list of “things.” What things? Well, that’s for you to decide!
