Customizing Tradition

Check out the video above. I discovered it on YouTube just now and had to smile. After watching it, I think you will too.

There are so many traditions we all play out in our lives. You gotta love it when someone has the imagination—and nerve—to put a special twist on a longstanding custom.

It’s especially fun to watch a mother and son find a way to connect in their own uniquely unforgettable way. Particularly when you realize they had to spend a significant amount of time choreographing, then practicing, their routine.

    1. That does sound like fun . . . and like he had a very understanding bride! Thanks for adding your comment! Jaycie

Where Everyone Knows Your Name: Writing small-town stories.

I have nothing against big cities. My youngest lives in Seattle, two blocks from the Space Needle. I fall more in love with the city each time I visit, but when it comes to where to set my stories, small-town wins every time. Although I admit, sitting near the water’s edge at Lake Union and… Read More
