This March I will be participating in the month-long Slice of Life Challenge. Each day I will be posting a ‘slice’ from my life. This year I am using Natalie Goldberg’s book Old Friend from Far Away: The Practice of Writing Memoir to provide my sparks for memoir writing. Each post will be a quick write using one of Natalie’s exercises to practice the skill of noticing and remembering.
It is hard not to slice about the coronavirus and social distancing measures that are dramatically altering our personal lives and creating a new societal normal. This prompt from Natalie actually helped me to stay centered amidst this chaos.
How has SILENCE and QUIET fit into your life?
What role are they playing in your recent days?
