In many practical ways, memoir writing requires that we return again and again to what we have to work with-not what we wish for, but what is.  So it is with life.  It is easy to get caught up in the dream of who we could be or what we could have been or how we could change our lives.  Sometimes we need to stop and become more aware of what is here, now.  To take our relationships and recommit our love.  To take our gifts and talents and use them in fresh ways.  To take the possessions we’ve accumulated and value them in new ways.
