Journaling at breakfast in Marrakech

Journaling at breakfast in Marrakech

Writing that helps us connect to key memories has the power to reshape the story we tell about ourself and opens us to insight that may impact our work, our personal life and the years ahead. The scent of Wrigley’s, My Sin or Old Spice, the sound of Piaf, Zeppelin or Nirvana, the feel of spreading cobalt blue on the page…can awaken, startle and reframe our memories. And the ideas and energy elicited can have profound effect.

What is waiting to be awakened in you?

      Hello Bettina–Just following upon your Moroccan post of some time ago and telling you the camels are taking off October 8, 2014 and they are calling your name–which, considering they are 5000 miles away is quite a thing to note! Hope you are enjoying a full featured spring. See you round the hood. Very best wishes, Kendall
