not a thread topic - just a free ad

I write in this section because its the busiest advertising spot in Wondercafe - which is, i guess as it should be.

An advertisement for me(yes. that title is plagiarized.)

I have a blog dealing mostly with New Brunswick, particularly education, politics and journalism in this province.

To reach it, google    The Moncton Times & Transcript - Good and Bad

I've just begun a second one. It's more general. It could be a story (the first is - and a true one, mostly). It may also be current events, the church, a children's story. Whatever is on my mind at the time.

building memories

Hi all,

 

As some of you know, my mother passed away last week.  I don't intend on this being a thread to express condolances but rather one where we talk about how to keep memories alive, or how to cement them in our minds to live with us forever.

I have said that I worked hard to remember my dad's voice ( he died in 2002) .  I can clearly see me opening the door each month when they visited, him walking in, giving me a big hug and saying  "Hello love"

The stories we tell!

A past moderator, Bill Phipps, wrote a book "Cause for Hope". In it he makes the point that people (we) live by the stories we tell. He even makes the point that for us to change the future is rather easy; all we have to do is change the story! Assuming that he is right, this would be an interesting tool for us to use. We could begin by contemplating what our society is like and then make the connection with the foundational stories we tell.

A Long Time Coming...

When I joined wondercafe a few days ago, I went directly to this very page. Convinced that my love for writing would give me something great to write about, some great introduction to the wondercafe community.

The Duality of Myth ... Aphorisms Value!

Is there such a thing Jack Daniels, or can you tell a man a truth without his losing his cool?

One seems to require a watering of truth, therefore the birth of a concept , a story ...

Don't yah just lou vite ...

Even since the Romans twisted the aspect of a spiritual soul and spirit into a real personification. Did passion walk the earth, scorth it ... pure illumination as awareness ... now which one was buried in the difficult depths of the soul ... has anyone found where we misplaced it?
