Doing my best to think about what's right...right, as is (inaction) or right, as in action. Amen.

This is a test. Anybody out there? Please add a comment. I now begin the early phases of transferring RAW (possibly sensitive) family data sharing from the mind and paper to the body and studio. These preliminary studies will be conducted in singular form, myself (and my mind- yikes!) exploring the open canvas.

Here I am at Highland Coffee, Louisville, Kentucky.  I listen to "Ring of Fire" more-folky version than original.  And I laugh...I remember an unnamed ex of mine (out of nowhere) breaking the ice upon meeting my just-senior brother:  "'Ring of Fire'- you know that song, he had to be talkin' bout Herpes, right [or was it crabs]?"  Wow!! I about lost it! He he.  The Marshalls do NOT talk about, ponder (out loud) such things.  At least, we did not then.  Just a funny example. 

'Tis the holiday season.  Here's to more talking- about all kinds of matter- more baking, more laughing, crying, the like...more making and less buying.  Looking forward to the first season back 'home' in thirteen years.

Missed y'all last Saturday!  I'm back with the top 10 questions to get us started:
1. Where and when were you born?
2. What do you remember about growing up?
3. Where did you go to school?
4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
5. How did your parents meet?
6. What do you know about your grandparents and great-grandparents?
7.  Were any of your ancestors born in a different country?
8.  What were some of your family traditions?
9.  Was anyone well-known in your family?
10. What is your favorite family memory?
Start practicing!  It's fun!!

I meant to get this out before midnight for all you dedicated readers.
Well, regarding our histories, I am now compiling a list of interview questions with the help of family members of all ages- thanks Jackie!  These questions are aimed to jog memories of our loved ones and get the stories flowing!! Ok, to be continued next week.

How are we (are we) connecting with those we love/ have loved TODAY?  Will we remember, do we remember, are we documenting ANYTHING from our past or present existence surrounding those we hold DEAR that came before us and those that are with us now?  How can I GET INTO TODAY by recovering my stories, my history?  And begin on a path of NOWness..
