Where

Some days, it’s not easy to reach your inner thoughts, but once there, what do you hear?  Are there thoughts you want to share?  Join us for a group, led by journalist and photographer Judy Licht, that gives you the opportunity to put on paper (or on computer) the thoughts and self questions that is in your mind now.

Writing down your thoughts gives you a safe place to explore what is going on in your mind – the worry, the anger, the fear – and it also can give you space to assess the personal strengths you are bringing to this challenging time.

Writing a journal seems like an easy thing to do, but it isn’t always.  A lot of questions spring up.  Who are you writing for, what are you trying to say, what’s your story, where do you start. It can be a simple reflection of the times, an oral history, a poem.  You will have the opportunity to read aloud to the group, keep your writing to yourself, or send it to Judy privately in this 4-week Journal Class. Each class will have a topic to write on prior to class.

Topic: I am feeling this way because…

Objective: Participants, write prior to class to create a journal entry that expresses their feelings about where they currently are with caregiving.
