napowrimo #10: celebrate!

Write about a birthday party, a wedding, a baptism — any kind of celebration where you were with family or friends or both. Write about the colors you remember, the sounds (and how they made you feel) and the tastes you remember from any of those events. Did these things make you feel good? Did you experience any new foods? Did you meet any new people?

Sometimes, beyond our control, festivities can take a turn for the worse. Maybe that happened to you or someone you know. Whatever happened, be it great or not so great, let’s write about it!

sometimes it takes sadness to appreciate when one is happiest, when one has much to live for, when it is proper for one to grieve. sometimes facing sadness and fear can turn into a happy occasion. a sad face may hide a happy heart; so each must have its due and respect.
