I follow a blog, ismithwords.com, that posts writing prompts every Wednesday in a segment called Literary Lion. I’ve responded to quite a few of the prompts. The most recent prompt was ‘water’ and I wrote a piece in response that is mostly memoir. I didn’t post it to The Casey Chronicle because it seemed more fitting to incorporate it on the blog which I reserve for more personal writings and poetry, rather than anecdotes and stories about Casey, mothering and family life. But it’s a piece of writing I am proud of and so I wanted to share it with a wider audience. You can find a link to it on the right of this blog or you can click through to read it here: Don’t ever turn your back on the ocean.
