Being a writer of sorts I am always looking for others like myself that enjoy putting our thoughts on paper. When I visited the library last week I glanced at the upcoming activities taking place and a writers group caught my eye…..They had their first meeting two weeks ago and were meeting again on Thursday afternoons at 2:30 and so this is where I headed today. There were six of us including me and it seemed we all instantly meshed as we said our hello’s. The premise of the group was to write about our lives our families our hopes and dreams and then share it with the group. We would not critique but just be a good listener. Marie had a wonderful experience that had happened to her mother and aunt when they had lived in an apartment up North. This ghostly experience they told her was true and so the story continues in Marie’s family. Next to read was Cathy who told us about her 60 year marriage and life with her husband and children. Paquino the only male in our group was adorable as he read his writing on the first time he traveled on New York’s subway system. He did know the English language nor did he know anyone else. Somehow, unknown to him there were relatives waiting to pick him up at the subway stop. He is originally from Cuba but lived in Italy for a long time and plans to write about his times spent in these countries.. I know he is going to have some great material to share with us.
The others did not have any writings and I just brought my notebook , (but I plan on bringing a few of my favorite postings) to share with the group at our next meeting. It was a wonderful afternoon and I look forward to hearing some more wonderful stories along with their names and where they are from. It was a joy to meet new people that are not only nice but interesting too.
