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.
Here’s to my lovely girls who did a journal writing session with me recently at Mary’s Place. We had fun, didn’t we, writing about My Mother’s Kitchen, with a prompt of fresh herbs?- last cuttings from my herb garden, tangerine sage, parsley, celerac, thyme, rosemary, fennel and a few others.
