45 x 365 - #1

So, I feel like I'm the last one to hear about this (he wrote exactly 40 words each day for a year describing someone he knew - someone he knew by name). I think I'm going to do something like this. I think I'm going to do 45 words or less and I'll try and post every day, but, you know, sometimes we go out of town and are not wired. During those times we go out of town, I'll make it up when we come back. I'll maintain the privacy of those being written about by using initials and pseudonyms. I have a list of 365 folks and I'm going to try really hard to stick to it.

1/365 - PBD
Every day you picked me up, you gave me a smile, a wave, and a sense of security. Children are hard, especially children with big, sad eyes, but you always knew the right words to say and years later I remember you and your kindness.*

*45 words on the nose!

  1. Well, you're not the last one to hear about it, since I didn't know either. But good luck on your own 365!

  2. I just heard about it yesterday, so apparently it's still making the rounds. Cool that you are doing this! I'm still kicking around the idea myself.

  3. I just read about it on Stefanie's blog today for the first time. I don't know if I could think of 365 people that I know though!
