Pearls and Knots - A Memoir




PEARLS AND KNOTS 

                        Dancing on a String from the Mississippi to Lake Michigan


       Perhaps more questions than answers, Pearls and Knots is my collection of memory treasures. What began as an attempt to capture a few moments from the past—triggered during a time of extreme health challenges in my husband's life—now stands as a quick-read memoir. Its purpose is to challenge each reader, whether you think of yourself as a writer or not, to pick up your own memory net to gather and then write your stories, for your family and friends. After all, you are 'writing' daily on social media—make some of it permanent.

The Process of a Writer of Memory

SOME DAYS ARE TOP-DOWN, SOME ARE BOTTOM-UP. TRY TAKING A DIFFERENT ANGLE ON AN EVENT OR MEMORY.
