  1. Wow! This is great. Thanks for the info.

  2. I spent 26 yrs of my life as a school and child psychologist, and having children tell stories (true, imagined or indeterminate) has been essential for my understanding of children, both involving learning and emotional issues. I am at a point where I . desire to both write my own stories, and help elderly people write theirs. Anyone out there with a similar goal? If yes, I would enjoy exchanging ideas.

      I am journaling about caring for my mother with Alzheimer’s Disease. She was the storyteller in our family and she helped
      me know my grandparents who died before I could remember or know them. I am finding that as we emptied out her house
      of her personal belongings, there are so many questions I want to ask her about her life, her childhood, her youthful dreams, any regrets. What would she do differently or do the same al over again? Now it is too late to ask her for she is free from the past and lives only in the present moment. If I had thought of asking her to write about herself I feel she would have taken the
      time to do this. What a gift it would be to have this in her own words.
