Martha in the Sewing Room

A long time ago I started writing tiny little bios about people in their contact page on my phone. In the beginning this was so I would remember who they were and why I had them in my phone to begin with. It tended to grow to some sentence structure in my contacts, and now I’m taking the ones with significant information and making my own personally known influencers list. Call it small unauthorized biographies, or just my way of honoring their lives, but they have in one form or another had a positive impact on my life personally. I started with family of course but will add to this list as time goes on and I have the opportunity to write more. If the person is a Fillmer or a Marchio they are on the immediate “family” side of things.
