I can't wait for the photo. I see a writing exercise.

Diana Bletter

The workshop sounds great - sorry I can't be there. With a pen and a blank piece of paper we can invent the story of our lives!


Too far away to attend the workshop.
Next time you see the Beach Witch, tell her Nelson is a 4-footed human. That's what I call my Shih Tzu, Piper


Would love to take your workshop, darn it! But way too far away...I dream of a long-distant workshop.

Sorry about the Beach Witch. She can't be a dog lover! (I begin to prefer dogs and cats to most humans--and not least because of people like her!)

I wish I could come to your workshop. I remember Barbara Clark from the storytelling community. She is a gifted speaker and an exceptional teacher. I am glad that you are greeting "Darth Vader." I remember that old chestnut "Kill 'em with kindness." It actually works!

Loren Stephens

The Beach Witch is priceless. What would Larry David do, I ask?

Det mesta av det du pekar ut är förvånansvärt legitimt och det gör mig att undra varför jag inte hade tittat på detta med detta ljus tidigare. Din artikel fick verkligen slå på ljuset på för mig personligen i den mån detta specifika ämne går. Men vid denna tid finns det faktiskt en viss position jag inte alltför bekväma med och medan jag försöker att förena det med ett centralt tema för positionen, låt mig se vad resten av dina läsare har att say.Nicely gjort.
