A writing prompt from Reverb10
"Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember"
How much my Mom comes through when I need her. Maui and the yoga girls. How much Lauren makes me laugh when she does, well, basically anything. All of Tiana's crazy tales. Meeting Troy and falling in love. The sunset in Hawaii- drinking Coronas and eating ceviche on crackers. Boarding the plane with Troy to Australia-pure happiness. Meeting Jack Berry for the time. Celebrating Cairo's birthday. Leaving my bank job and starting something new. Seeing my sister in the airport after months away in Korea- seeing my Mom running to hug her. Reading in bed with my man next to me. The feeling of teaching yoga. All my crazy nights out... dancing at the Lamplighter. The inspiration I felt after watching the Ironman. Solo dinners with my Dad.

"By compassion we make others' misery our own, and so, by relieving them, we relieve ourselves also"
I wanted to share this facebook inititative started by my friend Nita... she is working to collect warm clothes and blankets for the city's homeless- please let me know if you have anything to donate.
Her message below:
"Winter has arrived and our Vancouver streets are filled with homeless people, many of these people are forced to stay outside in these winter months. Homeless people are sleeping outside right now in freezing cold and snowy weather, while we are lucky to have warm beds, with warm blankets. If you could look in your house for a spare blanket that you do not use, or an old jacket, or even scarfs, mittens, or toques. If you do not have any of these items, but you still want to help you can make a small donation by going to a thrift store and buying something cozy to donate. You are not only keeping these people warm but you are saving their lives since many die each year from the cold and the snow. We hope you find it in your hearts to help us help them! We will be collecting all items until Dec 12 2010, which we will then be donating to a church to be distributed out to Vancouvers less fortunate"
