Mother of 5, middle-school educator in Austin, TX.
I began this blog because I accepted the Slice of Life 2016 challenge to write throughout the month of March.
What should I write about?
I decided to wrap my thoughts around a project I began last summer — a memoir about my Dad. And me. And my extended family.
But that may not be all that I write about.
The title of this blog, “I’ll Give You All This and More” comes from the last conversation I had with my father 4 years ago. The dialogue itself begins here. There may be more. It just hasn’t come to me, yet.
For all this blog, there is more, so much more.
The plan is to utilize this blog as my field notes (digital WNB) and to expand further privately on my laptop. I’ve had such an issue composing on the computer, you see. For over a year, everything has been handwritten. I love the intimacy of the written page, of my notebooks.
But the closer my mind comes to going with my memories, I have to be ready, and practice in this medium.
So, thank you. Thank you in advance for your encouragement and helping me on this journey.
