Famous Last Words

What is it you wish to say? What is the heart of the matter? (The blog 27 days asks what you would write on a sick bag on a plane going down...)

Today I petted a cat, watched koi fish swim in a front yard fountain, saw a hummingbird and a swarm of bees, some ants. A hawk and a hillside terraced with wildflowers. We can learn everything we need to know about how to live from animals, creatures, nature. I know you know that. But maybe, like me, have forgotten.

Another blog stresses that writers must know their audience - whom are they writing to? As I walked, thinking of my post today, this question stymied me.

Then I realized.

I am writing to one person. And that person is the one who will most take my words to heart. I am writing to your heart.

A lesson I have thought about often and on one occassion it changed my whole life. Whe are you writing for well count me as one. What would I write on a sick bag? "Well that was fun while it lasted."

I'd write about the day and what had been on my mind, planning to add to the other days and hope somehow I'll have another.
