My six words are in the title if this post. To live in lives we leave behind, is not to die.”
Judith Baxter 1938 –

In 2009 I devised and have since run a course on Memory Witing,  This is not to write your life story, but to record your memories to pass on to future generations. But now, after so many years, the time came for the workbook to be updated.  And now it has been,

The course is ideally, run as a group, but sometimes I have had people who either didn’t have the time or the desire to work in a group, and so they have successfully worked through the course on their own using the workbook.

The course comprises six sessions and depending on the number of people involved, will usually take about one and a half to two hours.

I introduce the course with a few remarks:-

On and off over the years, I have written my memories.
I told them and read them to my young children when they were too young to read for themselves, and they treated them like fairy stories.
Those memories were the bricks on which we built our lives My growing up during and after World War Two was a totally foreign environment to them. And as we moved to New Zealand when they were seven and four London was mostly foreign to them too, although I called it home and we visited family there bi-annually.
The children grew up and made their own memories, but I continued to write mine.
At one time, I printed out the memories. I had them ring-bound and they sat on the coffee table along with other, much better-presented coffee table books.
Friends began to notice and ask how they could/should start to collect and collate their memories, and so the course was devised and with it came this workbook for participants.

And I am now pleased to say the workbook is ready to go onto Amazon to be sold. But before then, I should like to offer a copy to any of my followers who would like to receive one. Please send an email to judith@judithbaxter.net.nz with Memory Lane Workbookin the subject line and I will respond asap.

This is really a great and precious gift for your future generations, so I hope to hear from you.

“Circumstances or people can take away your material possessions,
they can take away your money, and they can take away your health.
But no one can ever take away your precious memories.”

    I have had experience with Judith’s Memory Lane course and it is easy and fun. It is meant for the next generations so you don’t have to sound like an author, you just have to sound like you, sharing your memories with loved ones.

  5. Thank you for the inspiration and for sharing your memories. I started blogging at a time of struggle and hard times. It was like an escape , then it was about remembering, of celebrating life in moments and memories. It helped me see my blessings , of being grateful and hopeful. Perhaps one day my son will stumble on it & see hope through me eyes and heart. Thanks Judith. Stay safe and take care.
