Yesterday I had the honor and privilege of hosting my first ever men’s memoir workshop. I had 4 brave men who stepped forward (from left to right we have Keith, Vinny, Jim and Tom). Last March when I was at the airport waiting to fly back to my father’s funeral my article came out in The Desert Sun called A Memoir Helps You To See Who You Really Are. I received a few email messages from men stating, I see you teach Women’s Memoir Classes, but what about us men? It was at that moment that I realized that I wish my own father would have had the chance to write his memoir and so the idea was planted. I had the best two hours yesterday. The men were wonderful and I look forward to having some more workshops just for men. Thank you Keith, Vinny, Jim and Tom for being the foundation for a great beginning for teaching men’s memoir workshops. I look forward to developing some workshops geared just for men. What a wonderful gift these men are doing, not only for themselves, but for their families!
