“It you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.” – Vincent Van Gogh
Have you ever felt like a cat who looks like she’s sleeping on the sunny windowsill, but she’s really listening to every sound, every movement? Well, that’s been me for the past six weeks. I feel a need to hang out a bit, store up energy, sleep, and maybe hibernate a little. Some days I can’t get enough of it, sleep that is. Seeing the sun first thing in the morning—who needs it, except to curl up in? And some nights I am ready to go to bed at 9:00, but push myself to stay awake until 10:00. Maybe these urges are less about hibernation and more about self-preservation. The state of somnolence can teach us a lot: we learn from our dreams, especially the recurring ones. I’m paying close attention to what my dreams are telling me—because I need some inspiration.
Sharing our stories is a way to ensure that our personal histories and life legacies will be passed on to the next generation. Join us at First Plymouth for “Writing the Stories of Your Life, Part I.” In this workshop, participants will reflect upon their significant life stories, celebrate their meaning and value, and complete a series of structured writing exercises to capture them. Additional memoir writing workshops are planned.
We will meet Saturday, February 18, 1:00-3:30. Workshop fee is $35. To register, please send your check to First Plymouth, c/o Addie Vortherms, 2000 D Street, Lincoln, NE 68502. For information, please call Addie at 402-476-7565.
Whether you are a beginning writer or one with many publications to your credit, this blog is your invitation to join the writing community.
Our wish is that it will serve as a source of inspiration and encouragement, and that it will help you reach deep within and write to your fullest potential. Welcome!Learn More About Becky & Lucy»
