What resonates with you?

What moves you deeply?

What makes you ache, listen, cry, scream, love?

Maybe it is a memory of a moment.

Maybe it is a photograph.

Maybe it is a quotation.

Maybe it is a song lyric or a piece of homemade paper.

Whatever it is, it can become a focal point of your memoir page.  Ultimately, a memoir is a home for all the things that resonate with us, that awaken us with their meaning and depth.  A memoir is a place to hold the events and moments that beg us to remember them.  Writing your memoirs captures gifts of time.  It imples us to clear out the clutter and focus on the things that really matter.
