Lynn Henriksen invited me to do a guest blog for her TellTale Souls blog. She posted it today at http://telltalesouls.com/blog/. Much of Lynn’s work centers on collecting stories about the mother/daughter relationship. And through her workshops (some of which are done in collaboration with Kate Farrell), she succeeds in creating a very safe, supportive place for daughters to explore their memories and write keepsake memoirs about their mothers. She has also collected a number of such stories for a book, which her agent is shopping to publishers now. So, when writing the guest blog, my thoughts naturally drifted toward my mother, who, unfortunately, committed suicide when I was very young.
Lynn’s blog, which she updated frequently, also has book reviews, contests and links to interesting resources.
