"Storytelling is healing. As we reveal ourselves in story, we become aware of the continuing core
of our lives under the fragmented surface of our experience. We become aware of the
multifaceted, multichaptered 'I' who is the storyteller. We can trace out the paradoxical
and even contradictory versions of ourselves that we create for different occasions,
different audiences ... Most important, as we become aware of ourselves
as storytellers, we realize that what we understand and imagine
about ourselves is a story. And when we know all this,
we can use our stories to heal
and make ourselves whole."

...... Susan Wittig Albert

Carpe Diem...and all That Jazz

I am currently working
on a memoir. It covers a five year period
of my life, beginning when a tree destroyed
my small Whidbey Island home. A week later I received an e-mail from
a stranger in Italy who had stumbled across my website through a strange series
of coincidences. An online friendship soon developed into a romance and several months later
I found myself living in Italy trying to adapt to a new culture.Click here to read Chapter One and Chapter Two of
