    these prompts restore an earlier sense of shelter–the space that gives you a safe home in which to reflect, remember, and anticipate!

    Thank you, Charles. It does feel like we’re on solid ground again when we return to our art. Each step bringing us closer to home.

    Becky’s piece reminded me of the JoySpaces in my life today and evoked a wonderful memory.
    When one of our sons was in middle school, he and his friends created a graphic hideaway in his walk-in closet which remains in our home today. It is filled with clever, funny teenage wisdom, humor , drawings, notes (even a love note or two) and a huge telephone directory of everyone who contributed. Several years ago, my 10 year old granddaughter was delighted by the contents and could not believe that her dad and his friends were the creators. She quickly memorized one of the poems that her dad and a friend had written and recited it to him via WhatsApp. A three generational JoySpace! Thanks, Becky for nudging me to acknowledge all the wonderful JoySpaces in my life—the more I ponder my JoySpaces, the more joy I can find in my everyday life even in this difficult time. The power of writing!!!

      What a beautiful story and a legacy to the power of writing! Reading your account of JoySpace brought joy to me, Susan. Thank you for writing. Doesn’t it seem the more we open our eyes to new possibilities, the more they happen?

    Benefits of slowing down, some distractions no longer an option, sense of time skewed, catnaps, lingering in that space between sleep and consciousness more frequently…”joyspace” where it has always been waiting. Perhaps

    Appreciate your perspectives and prompts, “Writing in Community”!

    Your words prompted recall of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’ quote: “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.” Thank you, Mike.
