One of the recommended “cures” for loneliness is writing your memoir. Writing about yourself in a journal or in a memoir writing class will soften feelings of isolation by putting the focus on you, according to AARP Magazine. Befriending yourself and appreciating your feelings and accomplishments is an affirmation of your life. That’s important. Once…Read More

After returning a week ago from the visiting the visual splendor of Japan in the Fall, I’m now immersing myself in autobiographies and books about memoir in preparation for presenting a new class called Write your Story: A Memoir Class.

I struggle with when and how to speak up, especially when it comes to politics. I have a friend who practically rants about our national political situation.
