December 15 – 5 Minutes. Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010. (Author: Patti Digh)

5 minutes of 2010
first, remember the sunsets at Ft. Foster
and the racing of the dog in the sand.
then, the bench above the salt marsh in the forest
where you spent so much time thinking.
remember the morning one day before Christmas
the upstairs apartment and the cold, big windows.
don’t forget the fresh farmer’s markets and the warm sun of summer.
hold onto Josh Ritter, DelFest, and Slaid Cleaves in the rain.
remember Chatham Bars Inn and that moment in Virginia
when you floated alone in the pool.
a warm Thanksgiving with new friends,
and the promise of what is next.
let the rest go.
