Memento and Wisdom

Memento and Wisdom by Michael McQueen

These books came about after Michaels father died suddenly, and during the process of sorting his belongings, they found a notebook in which Michael's father had written the lessons he had learnt throughout his life. The family found this notebook enlightening and it was a great comfort in such a tragic time.
This notion resonated with so many people, that the idea of a giftbook full of questions to be filled in was born.
These books are an amazing activity in self reflection, as well as being a wonderful keepsake and insight into your life, for yourself and for others (if you want to bear your soul).
Although I am not approaching the end of my life (at least i hope not), I love the notion behind these books and will be filling them out with as much detail and honesty as I can. I hope throughout my life I can add bits and pieces here and there, and that these books will become just the basis of a wonderful reflection. And maybe over time, the pages wont look quite as neat and tidy, but I look forward to scribbling in the margins and sticking in loose scraps of paper on which I have scrawled thoughts or ideas or feelings.
If you get the chance, take a look at these wonderful books, because if nothing else, the questions will make you take a good hard look at yourself and your life.
