Here are some more journaling entries from my Writing Workshop (http://writearound.org) I'm so sad there are only 3 weeks left! I hope we can start our own ongoing journaling class and continue on!
We had a 5 minute write, the prompts were:
"In my dreams..." or "Underneath it all..."
In My Dreams
by Shauna Berglund-Immel
I see you in my dreams. You visit me every night. Gently taking my hand and walking with me along the winding path. Beside me, a strong presence. Comforting. Reassuring.
We then did a long write, along the theme of "life's lessons" in which we had numerous choices. I chose to start a letter to my 12 year old son, Spencer. It's only a start, a work in progress. I hope to write one for all of my loved ones. For all the special occasions that occur throughout one's lifetime, and put them in a box in case I'm not here to experience them in person. I think I'm going to keep this one to myself for now.
We then only had 5 minutes and one of the girls threw out a prompt idea: "I need..." Our assignment was to write one sentence that started with "I need..." I made it a long one! :)
Flicker of Hope
By Shauna Berglund Immel
I need to reach deep inside of me and grab the hope that flickers there and shelter it from going out.
I hope to see you all "in my dreams" tonight!
