#MicroblogMondays: The Ohlone Creation Myth

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.

"All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was. Writers are like that: remembering where we were, that valley we ran through, what the banks were like, the light that was there and the route back to our original place. It is emotional memory - what the nerves and the skin remember as well as how it appeared. And a rush of imagination is our "flooding"

~Toni Morrison. Full quote here


  1. Whoa. I'm going to be thinking about that quote for awhile! I've thought before about how a drop of water has so much history – like it has lived many lives. But the idea of water being able to remember its entire journey is fascinating!

  2. Wow. I love this. I too will be thinking about it for a while.

  3. As a highly nostalgic person, I do like that a lot :-)

  4. This is beautiful. The water metaphor for our souls, the writer's desire to document and share the journey.
