Prompt: 5 minutes. 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 about 2010. (Prompt by author Patti Digh.)
Setting the timer:
TEDxHouston — the whole thing, from the flash mob outside at the beginning, to all the speakers, to the amazing finale
The Houston Feldenkrais Training — all 40 days of it. The fabulous feeling of seeing students walk in on each “first day.” The feeling of achievement for having pulled it off.
The Social Media Shindigs by Aimee Woodall. Such fun and mayhem.
Time spent with my kiddos. All of those get-togethers.
Pedicure with Abby and real adult talk.
Each loving interaction with my partner.
Our trip to Chicago — every moment of it.
Performances by Divergence Vocal Theater, Houston Grand Opera, Mildred’s Umbrella
Fun times visiting friends at their homes
Music and parties at the Caroline Collective, especially MoshePalooza, BiteMeHouston, Do713, and Caroline Sessions —
That was the alarm.
