I had my first baby and started a blog. That was in 2005. Nine years later, I had my fourth baby and stopped my blog. I spent the next year taking care of that baby and writing handwritten letters. Every day from March 9, 2015, to March 8, 2016, I took what I could say to the masses and doled it out to one person at a time, one letter at a time. I didn’t want my Letter Project to end.
I still write some letters, but now I write about writing letters, about what I learned in the process and how I became more human. I have decided to merge my thoughts on letter-writing with my interest in quotes and my fascination with minutiae into one big unfinished letter called a blog. It is addressed to you, with love.
This is the second post in a series on memory work. There is no expectation or pressure that you will do as we do. I write of our experience in hopes of encouraging you to create your own Scripture memory experience in a way that works for your family.

This morning, I had a headache, left over from yesterday's headache. I woke up too early and without a good morning strategy. I tried to sleep, then I tried to read and pray, then I tried to work out for a bit.

I spent an unknown numbers of hours, starting sometime in September and ending at the end of December, copying down quotes from Writing Down the Bones, the brilliant book by Natalie Goldberg on creating a writing practice. So much of what Goldberg writes wakes me up in the same way that Annie Dillard does.
