My “girls” at Mary’s Place last Saturday, at journal writing workshop

My “girls” at Mary’s Place last Saturday, at journal writing workshop. We wrote from a mental picture of our young selves, telling the little girl in us “you don’t know you will…”  and we added one magical realism “you don’t know” which conjured up some wonderful fantastic fun… “don’t know you will win a Nobel Peace Prize, “ etc. A very creative group of women, full of amazing spiritual gifts.

I’ll be telling my story, “Are You Foaming At the Mouth Yet?” at the New Jersey Storytellers Project – Sept. 19, 2018

I’ll be telling my story, “Are You Foaming At the Mouth Yet?” at the New Jersey Storytellers Project at the Asbury Park Hotel in Asbury Park, on Wednesday, September 19th, 7 – 8:30 p.m.  (A story about the time I had to get rabies shots).

The theme of the evening is “It Sounded Like a Good Idea at the Time.”  My poor husband and kids appear in the story, and fare better than me!  Tickets are available at Jersey Storytellers Project, tickets.app.com, $12, $6 students.

I think it will be a fun evening, and I hope to see you there!
