I Cannot Help Myself

I simply have to add this short note for the readers of my Palestinian adventures.

I am having so much fun telling these stories. I’m new to writing, remember. Last evening I submitted my copy of my manuscript to publication of my first book Hawaiʻi Calling. Sometime this summer I will become a published author. But it’s all new stuff.

And, OMG, how fun!

It amazes me what happens with writing. Even though I have long experienced and known this, it still amazes me. Memory–what a marvel. As I write and share these precious stories from a time seven or eight years ago, I am reliving the experiences. My senses are alert. I see, hear, smell, taste, touch, feel everything as it happened then.

Memory. Past, present, future. Future memory? You bet! How often do we imagine and foretell something that we will do. We plan a vacation and imagine it happening. We revisit that idea. Is it not a future memory?

And this budding author is having a blast, mixing memories of then, now and tomorrow. Memory stew.

Thanks for sharing with me.
