Where I'm From
This one's tricky, but you'll end up with a piece of writing and a scrapbook page (or entire book) that you'll treasure forever.

SHOW where you are from with your words, don't TELL the name of a place.

(Makes a great Christmas present.)
Challenge Requirements:
If you were asked "where are you from?" you'd be inclined to TELL the name of a city and state. If you couldn't give names, what would you say?

This challenge asks you to SHOW where you're from using words or pictures rather than smiply TELLING the name of a place.

You can write your various "I'm From" lines first and then find pictures (if you want) to correspond or you can use pictures from your past to guide your writing.

You may even find that you want to make an entire scrapbook, rather than just a page.

I have included my own page using these guidelines. Please don't vote for it here.

Here is an excerpt from George Ella Lyon's original poem: to read the entire poem, go to my homepage.

"I am from clothespins,
from Clorox and carbon-tetrachloride.
I am from the dirt under the black porch.
(Black, glistening
it tasted like beets.)
I am from the forsythia bush,
the Dutch elm
whose long gone limbs I remember
as if they were my own..."
