The Rough Writing Road

A 16 week self-directed Online Journaling Course
Your course is invaluable…thank you for the inspiration and spontaneity you sow into the word around you. (Y O)
Writers all… I have created an online journal course with the help of an online ‘guru.’

Our guiding metaphor is the rough road we travel along on the writing path. I prompt via stories, questions, quotations, poems, memories and suggestions. These are drawn from many traditions and faiths. Helping you find your voice. As you walk you enter a great conversation with yourself … and others.
Why the rough road? It’s writing that has not been crafted or edited. Spontaneous. Rough as in rough days. Some of the 16 units are: Retraining the Eye…
Many Selves…Dreaming…The Fire that warms you Five Times…Living the Questions Now…

Midrash, Rilke, Apollo and Us

Many candles can be kindled from one candle without diminishing its light
Midrash involves Biblical interpretation. It’s about elaborating and asking
questions about a text. Why did Eve engage with the snake? Why did Lots’
wife turn around? For me, midrash allows the imagination to flesh the
bones of a skeletal story and participate in a text, lifting personal
meaning from between the lines. And such a meaning changes with each encounter for yesterday’s reader is not the reader facing today’s page.
