Rummikub with BJ and Martha

What’s a Memoir Moment? Is it the first photo of a newborn? The moment the bride and groom kiss? A retirement celebration? Yes, those are auspicious moments and momentous in changing our lives.

But what about those other moments? Those small moments of humor, heartbreak, or  just plain fun that make up our personal stories. Like my weekly Rummikub game with BJ and Martha. At 98, BJ still plays a mean game of Rummikub and I am so appreciative of our precious time together. A bit of time playing a trivial game–and it means so much to me.

So a memoir moment is a snapshot–a moment that makes up our personal stories and reveals who we are as human beings.
