I played a fun game this morning – memory dominoes.
My childhood friend John inspired it.
I got a Facebook message from John about how much my dad loved David Bowie.
Cracked me up that John remembered that. Warmed my heart and nudged me to find photos of my dad.
And then I found old photos I’d taken of advertising barns when I was a teenager. One barn had a RC Cola image on it.
And then I remembered the RC Cola & Moonpie eating contests we used to have at ECU.
And then I remembered how much my pals and I loved to eat moonpies when we were kids.
And then I remembered all of the holy hours I spent with my family and friends at the beach when I was a kid.
And then I remembered Senior Skip Day at the beach.
And then I remembered wrecking my first car (an avocado green Pinto) at the boardwalk during Jr/Sr Weekend.
And then I remembered having to tell my dad about it.
And then I remembered Dad & me staying up late to watch David Bowie on Saturday Night Live.
And then (with a huge smile on my face) I sent a shout out to John and am now ready to step into a new day feeling SO grateful.
I forget more often than I remember these days. When I DO remember – it definitely has a domino effect. Too cool.
How ’bout you?
