So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much!

p.s. my mom now refers to me as the family "chronicler" - getting down all the family stories. How I love that title!! :)

Write, don't call me.


I get so many robo calls and calls from people asking for money, that I don't answer my home phone unless I know who is calling. If they don't leave a message, I don't think they need to speak to me. Very few people know my cell phone number. I have a small flip phone that really doesn't do anything much but act as a telephone, not a computer.

The blogger at Windbreakhouse really speaks for me about being glued to a cell phone. She says she wants people to write to her, not call her. I like that, but at times I like to hear the voice of my family.

This blogger and writer says what I feel about cell phones and the obsession people have today with being available 24/7. I am not available 24/7 and I like it that way.

I too am very happy not to be available twenty four hours a day. The main reason? I just don't want to be at the beck and call of every Tom, Dick and Harriet.

I also don't answer the phone if I don't recognize the ringtone. I've given all my regular callers their own ring, and I know who is calling before ever looking at the screen. :-)
