Thought you would like to see some photos of our WOW (Writers of Wisdom) Christmas celebration at Sachi Welsh’s home. It was a great turkey/ham Christmas feast (cooked completely by Sachi) and a lot of camaraderie. No stories were written for this one–but we definitely verbalized a lot. We started writing our life stories in 1997–with a Life Story Writing class–taught by Jennifer Salmon who was working on her doctoral dissertation. Meeting twice a month, we have been writing our stories ever since. We’ve also published two anthologies. Joan Schell missed the photo op and Brenda Tipps was traveling. –Marilyn Bartholomew
