DSC_0370I’m at my first Writers Conference today (DFW Writers Conference), trying to run head-long into a dream I’ve had since I was small.

I wrote my first poem when I was six or eight. I could barely write; my penmanship was terrible. Through the years, my grandmother would always ask, “How’s the writing?”

She taught me to love reading, love the mountains, and she made me believe that I am able.

She loved daffodils. I love daffodils. She had them planted all over her property.

It won’t be long now. Her home – the place I loved – will be sold to someone new. I’m glad I had a chance to visit once more. So many lovely places live in my memories because of her home in that little valley. I’ll miss it. I cherish the place.

It’s not quite the same without her in it these days, so I cherish the memories.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing the story and photos with us during the blogfest. I’ve been back to visit my grandmothers home, long after it passed from our family and it still brings back memories. Great post!
