The Book of Me, Written by You: Prompt 39 – Do you have a safe place?

kst1969   May 24, 2014   Comments Off on The Book of Me, Written by You: Prompt 39 – Do you have a safe place?

I don’t really have a safe place. I keep things I must not loose in my bedroom in the drawers of my media center or on top of the dresser. I keep important papers in the file cabinet by the office desk. Family mementos and pictures I have scanned or photographed and I keep them in the cloud as digital images as well as on an external harddrive so that I will be able to keep them forever and share them with my niece and nephews and the rest of the family.

When I just want to take time out, I go for a drive, sit in the chair in my room and relax in front of the tv or take a long bubble bath with a book.


This week’s prompt is – Do you have a safe place?

  • This can be somewhere that you gravitate to, to make decisions or reflect
  • Somewhere you go to think
  • Somewhere you go to take time out
  • Somewhere you keep things you must not loose
    • or do you have more than one safe place?

Having looked at the prompt hints have you changed that immediate thought?



The Book of Me, Written by You

By Julie Goucher 2012 – Anglers Rest Blog –


The Book of Me is a themed event enabling you to build a “Book of Me” over at least the coming year to share with your descendants, in reality this project can be as long
or as short as you want it to be.

So much of our time is researching our ancestors, but how much of the incidentals of our lives do we share, or know about our parents, grandparents, siblings and the
people that matter to us?

It is these incidental snippets that enable us to “flesh out” our ancestors and what more of a legacy could we present to our descendants or future researchers?

Over the coming weeks there will be a weekly prompt enabling you to share those details and perhaps include details of things that you know of your parents, Grandparents, siblings etc

This is not just about genealogy or family history. It is about a personal journey; a journey of rediscovery of yourself and perhaps your loved ones through your eyes.
