This March I will be participating in the month-long Slice of Life Challenge. Each day I will be posting a ‘slice’ from my life. This year I am using Natalie Goldberg’s book Old Friend from Far Away: The Practice of Writing Memoir to provide my sparks for memoir writing. Each post will be a quick write using one of Natalie’s exercises to practice the skill of noticing and remembering.
What have you tried to repair? Go.
I realized I really haven’t had to repair much in my life (and clearly am not very successful). Perhaps that’s a result of our ‘throw-away’ society and the availability of inexpensive electronics and other products. Easier to toss things out and buy a new one. I bet if I asked this question of my parents or grandparents they would have many more memories and experiences. HAVE YOU TRIED TO REPAIR ANYTHING LATELY?
