I Remember

on October 26, 2011

Last week, I did a poetry exercise with the teens at Denney Juvenile Justice Center called “I Remember.” I read a few pages from Joe Brainard’s book, I Remember, that focused on Halloween and Fall. Then, I asked the kids to write a list of “I Remembers” about Fall.  We’ll use this list as a jumping off place for writing next week. One of the “I Remembers”  I wrote was about my Mom’s red carnival glass candy jar. She always kept the candy acorns and pumpkins in the jar. Right after the Denney workshop, I spent a few days visiting my Mom.  The first thing I noticed was the red glass jar was filled with…Candy Acorns and Pumpkins! What do you remember about Fall?

    Going thru my e-mails…missed yours… my Mom too had carnival glass and kept mints in a couple of them placed in the kitchen and living room. My sister shares with me the many object’d’art Mom had…always brings back memories.
