On this gorgeous early fall day, writing practice teacher Natalie Goldberg “Talked Writing” in our courtyard. Invited by Memoir teacher Pamela Boyd, Natalie gave great advice, answered questions, and reminded us to drop down, dig in and connect to the places that bring our lives alive for us. Thirty-five+ people answered the call and showed up to hear her. Show up. Find the “opening,” the “angle” and write. It was a joyful afternoon here at Hillside. Thanks, September, you were a terrific month.
