More than Just Our Stories — 6 Comments

  1. Thank you, Pam, for sharing this with us! This is very powerful and moving! I too have found that sharing about my health/illness issues has helped me incredibly. I haven’t written that much, but I think story-telling is similar.

    Thank you,

  2. Hi Diane,

    I agree that storytelling is similar. I went to a conference a couple of years ago at Goddard College about Transformative Language Arts, and there were storytellers, singer/songwriters, people using poetry, theatre, journalling, and more as tools for transformation and healing for individuals, groups and communities.

    The TLA book, The Power of Words: A Transformative Language Arts Reader, which includes my piece More Than Just our Stories, was an outgrowth of this conference and is now hot off the presses! It can be purchased at the website, http://www.tlanetwork.org

    Thanks for your help making this blog happen! If you want me to recommend your blog-alicious work to anyone I’ll be glad to.

  3. Here’s my recommendation, Diane:

    I enjoyed working with Diane as she shepherded me onto the wide world of the web. She was kind, gentle and knowledgeable; she understood what I wanted and she did it quickly and effortlessly. After our meeting she made herself available by phone for questions and assistance as I made my first steps into blog-land.

    I was amazed at how easy and inexpensive it was to get a webpage and blog.

    Working with Diane is blog-a-licious!
