Days of Being: December 27

She loved that Dave Eggers included a drawing of a stapler in A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius writing, “Here is a drawing of a stapler.” Maybe one day she would write a book that has a drawing of a stapler.

I’d love for you to share one of your ordinary moments in the comments below.  Or you can submit a few sentences about one of your ordinary moments and I’ll write a Days of Being entry to post online and on Instagram. If you’d like to participate, email me at

Days of Being is a micro-memoir and micro-story project exploring memories and moments from our ordinary days. Multiple years are represented within the project celebrating what Madeleine L’Engle once said: “I am still every age that I have been.” Today’s micro-memoir is from one of my December 27s.
