26 Treasures Launch Day
It was a great day!
It opened with a long Scots poem by Aimee Chalmers accompanied by an astonishing saxophonist named Richard Ingram. Then through the course of the afternoon each of the 26 of us spoke about the experience of coming to terms with our object, and read what we'd written. Like the objects themselves, the range of 62-word pieces was fascinatingly wide. The audiences for each session were appreciative and in between I did some shameless hustling for the Alternative 26 workshop on 21 January!
And afterwards, when we had the chance to talk together, it was interesting how many of us were saying, "This is great - when can we do it again?!" Definitely addictive, this 26 Treasuring!
P.S. On another note, I've put a post up on Girls Heart Books titled We Are Not Alone! - come see me there!
