A 30-day blog project: Something FoundSomething Written, and Something Made.


Day #16

Something FOUND.

Love the illustration work of Kara Kramer.


Something WRITTEN.

Thing you need to know #1:
My mom had a big birthday last month. I was able to surprise her and arrived in the middle of her birthday party!

Thing you need to know #2:
On the airplane from Seattle to Denver I had been thinking of the amount of time we had lived in Seattle — seven years — and how fast it has gone. (Wes in high school – blink -high school graduation – blink – Wes in collage – blink – Wes graduating in just 10 days… so very fast!)

Because children probably always think of their parents as old, my mom at 80 seems, well, “up there.”

When I saw my mom at the party, I had a weird thought: How many “Sevens” (the number of years that have just flown by so fast) will it take before I am 80, like my mother?

The answer made my heart skip: Four.

Only FOUR “Sevens?”

I’ve been thinking about this for weeks.


Something MADE.
