In an effort to help a friend wade through the 569 posts I have written over two-and-a-half years, I told him I would scroll back and come up with my favorites. It proved to be an interesting exercise. Some of what I have written is deeply personal and heartfelt. Sometimes that equates to good writing. Other posts are my observations about poignant moments, or a description of a fleeting contact with a person I will never forget, or a humorous take on some aspect of my job. Sometimes those posts reflect good writing as well.
But my favorites? Subject matter aside, those would be the posts that flowed so easily and so quickly, that required so little editing, that I surprise myself when I re-read them today. I wrote that?
Missing from this list are the posts I have written about RG Son and Daughter. They are my real favorites, including the one I wrote on the eve of my son’s graduation from college a year ago May. But in terms of writing for writing’s sake, the following are the posts I would point to if pressed to whittle it all down to a few.
For those of you who have been reading all along, welcome to a trip down Memory Lane. For those of you new to reading this blog, check out some of these older posts. You’ll glimpse a snapshot of where I was a few months and years ago, and, I hope, enjoy the read.
