Answer to Monday's Riddle! Visiting Memory Lane...

Pat & Pru Morrow
A good memory, kept : ) 
Fabulous guessing Riddlers! I love the creative thinking- 1st draft is brilliant, Lee! However, it was Joanne Fritz that guessed correctly with her answer of memory, and yes, my first one was a smell. It wasn't a pleasant smell, but rather a somewhat pungent odor that I can still easily distinguish today- it's the scent of a dead mouse in a house. I have thought long and hard about this memory, and I think I must have been about two or three when it all went down, but when I trace everything all the way back as far as I can remember, that's what I come up with- fascinating!

We are shining our bright lights on the world this week, thanks to the spirited writer, Gueh Yanting, Claudine and her unique children's book Brightness Sailors: Bit by Bit. This story focuses on children learning to understand their elders as they navigate through the changing tides of memory loss. It's a touching book that resonates within all of us, especially those who have known a close family member that has suffered from dementia. Stop by our Sunday post to hear our stories of the people who have helped to fill our worlds with joy.

Lizzy's review will be a trip down memory lane, and Thursday, we have something special planned for Top of the Heap. Friday, Margo has her luminescent beam ready to spotlight this excellent new book, and Saturday on The DMS Wants to Know, we hope that you will hop onboard our twinkling ship and tell us a tale or two of your own! Happy reading people! See you all around the book block ; ) ~ F

Dreams and notions go streaming by- catch them quickly with your naked eye. Chart the scene in inky thought and connect the dots how you're taught. It makes no difference, the world around, when lost inside familiar ground. You and me, we have such time to watch ourselves learn the rhyme. When floating easy in your space, view a clip, and know my face.
