Memory Lane

My horoscope this morning states:  “Your subconscious has decided that you need to take a trip. It might be an actual  journey, or it might be a trip down Memory Lane. Once you’re on the road, you’re glad you went along for the ride!”

This is exactly what I’m doing, taking a trip down Memory Lane, and it’s a wild ride to review 13 year old events.  The actual events, not just what I think happened.  Email was the primary communication tool in 1997, I think we were operating Windows 95 :), and my sister Sharon and I were writing to each other daily in anticipation of being neighbors after 19 years on opposite coasts of the country.  Sharon printed all the emails to save in case we wanted to write a book about it someday.  Little did we know how long we’d write or how many events would transpire!  So I have binders full of what actually happened, who said and did what, and how I felt about it.

I know the exact date of the main events.  It was weird to see what happened on  5/5/1997 that was being mirrored on 5/5/2010 with some of the same players, some of the same energy, even same themes.  Spooky.

When I told Sharon about it she stated that it means I’ll be writing a story that’s a lot deeper than I imagine.  She’s probably right.  13 is my favorite number and also in those emails was my introduction to numerology, and the numbers I chose to have interpreted produced a double 5 energy.

So I dug in and started the first draft.
