Day 9

Posted on Jan 9, 2011 in Blog

Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.Social gatherings!  2010 had a few.  (I’d like 2011 to have a few more.  Roll on the Dinner Parties for Strangers!)  Anyway, the one that rocked my socks off would have to be the Canadian Thanksgiving Extravaganza at […]

Day 8

Beautifully different. Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different – you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful. You know, my first instinct on reading this prompt was to cringe.  Who are you, said a little inner voice, to assume […]

Day 7

Community.  Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011? Community.  A word and a thing that I find I’ve been craving quite a bit in the last few years.  Which is odd, because at the same time, when […]

Day 6

Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? The last thing?  Split pea soup.  (We’ll go with 2011 on this one.)  Non vegetarian split pea soup, too.  With an actual ham bone that was […]

Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? A city (Edinburgh)An apartment (oh glorious shoebox, oh wonderful wonderful Holly Golightly house)Various bits of IKEA furnitureThe physical presence of some very dear friends (which seems to be happening every 1.5 years on average, now, as I continue to boomerang my way […]

Day Four

Day 4:  Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? My first instinct when I read this question was to hang my head in shame, because on first reflection, I don’t think I cultivated much of a sense of wonder in my life at all in 2010. 2010 (and […]

Day Three

Day 3 – Moment. Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors). Since this is Reverb 10, The Delayed Version, I am of course using this prompt to describe a moment in 2010.  Hmm, hmm.  A moment when I felt most alive […]

January 2: (On) Writing

Posted on Jan 3, 2011 in Blog

January 2: What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it? Oh, GOD.  What do I NOT do that doesn’t contribute to my writing?  I amaze myself at how good I am at this.  It’s gotten to the point now where every day is 24 hours […]

A Happy New Year, and a one month delay (or, The Year of The Pen)

Posted on Jan 1, 2011 in Blog

I’ve been following the buzz around Reverb 10 for a wee while.  But I didn’t do it this past December, mostly because I was too tired (read:  too lazy?) to do it.  And then I got to thinking.  See, Reverb 10 is all about envisioning.  Thinking and reflecting on the past year and envisioning a […]
