Remembering is an important part of life; to only look to the future is not enough. This balance was noted at the National Writing Project conference at the end of November. The audience was invited to write to the following prompt: "Memory Keepers, what must we hold onto as we move forward? Mavericks, what new opportunities excites us most?"
As the year winds to an end, I invite you to look back as you go forward.
Look back on your school year, your career, your life.
Look back also on this blog, a Memory Keeper of sorts for the Red River Valley Writing Project.
Look back as you go forward.
