Word of the Week

December 13, 2012

Actually 2 words this week: collective and memory.

Collective memory:

1.The ability of a community to remember events.
2.The collection of memories shared by a common culture.

This made me think of my kids and the things we do together, and being that it is December,our christmas traditions.

Every December we paint little christmas ornaments for our tree, this year probably 1/2 of the ornaments on the tree are hand-made by us.

Each one brings back a memory of a time shared, listening to christmas music and painting.

Fall and winter are my favorite seasons, and I love taking walks through beautiful parks with my kids.  They are usually up for it, but of course as we all grow and change none of us experience this time together the same way.  There for we will all have our individual memory of these walks, but collective none the less.

Beautiful:
