Family Diaries and Documents

Recently I've heard from several people who have diaries, journals, poetry and other documents from ancestors. Let's share what treasures we have, what they teach us about ourselves, and how we can use them as the basis for our own writing.

September Writing Habits

Posted on September 2, 2010 at 11:43am 0 Comments

After spending August establishing my new habit of writing for an hour in the morning before going online, I spent some time yesterday thinking about what I want to do for September. I'm grateful to a couple of authors whose books have guided me in this area.



I've already written about the book The Power of Slow, by Christine… Continue

Complacencies of the Pen

Posted on August 15, 2010 at 1:17pm 0 Comments

Sunday Morning

by Wallace Stevens



Complacencies of the peignoir, and late

Coffee and oranges in a sunny chair,

And the green freedom of a cockatoo

Upon a rug mingle to dissipate

The holy hush of ancient sacrifice.

She dreams a little…




Complacency: 1. The fact or state of being pleased with a thing or person; tranquil… Continue

Lisa, thanks kindly for running the interview here too. And thanks again for the "assignment."

I'm flattered to receive a friend request from someone so accomplished, Lisa. I was fascinated by your blog on "Everyday Intensity." I mentioned it to my husband, and it gave him a laugh, since many people would call me "intense." However, I didn't quite fit the list of requirements. Phew. They WERE intense. :) Looking forward to connecting with someone so keyed into intellectual pursuits. I will warn you however, my writing might be a shock to someone with one-time aspirations to get herself to a nunnery!

Lisa,

been meaning to give my vote on web/blog layout--thought I'd do it here at last! I prefer the layout of your current site--I tend to like a layout with images, etc, so the calendar snippet posting is less appealing to me, though I can understand it gives someone a better idea of a greater number of posts at a glance. Hope that helps....

Thanks so much, Lisa! I saw you had linked to Tell Us We're Home on your own blog, which I shared with my husband, Marc Aronson, as I think some of his interests overlap with yours, in terms of challenging young people ...

Thanks, Lisa! And I LOVE that Liz Gilber quote/TED talk. One of my goals in life is to be friends with her :). Thanks for the encouragement!

Lisa -
I grew up in central Illinois, but my grandparents and four aunts and uncles lived in South Dakota. Every other year we'd spend a week on the family farm 30 miles west of Faith, but I haven't been back since my grandmother died in 1987. I feel much closer to South Dakota through my Dad's diaries and memoirs than I did by visiting.
