the BIG write :: september 2017

by Cynthia Berg

It’s September and I have that September feeling – memories of the flutter of returning to school and the dangers of being seen, being myself without all the disguises. Write-along with me using a line from a Cecilia Woloch poem and let’s make this month a time of embracing ALL of our bits – the vices, the worries, the secrets, the pleasures.

    So wish I could get in on the Sept 11 write but will be at the periodontist. Think of me. Keep me on your list. I enjoy the group share, which is what I originally dreaded most. See you soon, Susan
