Dessert

Filed under: memoir — freethepen @ 1:49 pm

bigstock-Freshly-baked-peanut-butter-co-38755924 Everyone has one dessert or one cookie that is their very favorite. My father only ate his sister’s cheesecake, a recipe she got from the New York Times. She made it every holiday. It had a denser texture than the cheesecakes they serve in restaurants in California which are creamy and silky. What is your favorite? Who makes it? Where did the recipe come from. What are your memories of it?

Which One Are You?

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 1:54 pm

bigstock-Love-Birds-on-a-branch-56002589Which one are you? Are you the person who acts in order to inflict suffering on others because you want them to know how you feel or are you the person who says, this hurts and I will never do this to anyone?

Write out how you came to this belief.
