Afternoon Tea

I had a wonderful afternoon with a little friend of mine. Her name is Hannah and we had tea at my house, just Hannah, her mama and me. It was wonderful! We enjoyed being together because she used to come to my church. Now her family have started a new church in Livermore and it is doing great...only I really miss her sometimes. So we spent the afternoon together and it was wonderful. Thanks Hannah for coming to tea, and bringing your mom along!

Creative Writing

I am the instructor of a very interesting class. Creative Writing. Yup, you guessed it! I'm teaching a creative writing class. You may ask, "how do you teach students to be creative?" I've asked myself that question probably a million times. I don't think I can. But I'm hoping that I can simply inspire my students and the "Creator" will flow through their brains and sudden inspiration will explode throughout the writing abyss of the soul. Sound scary? It really isn't once you've experienced the phenomonom of inspiration. I keep telling my students that the lives you touch with the written word far surpasses the glimpses of pulpit opportunity. Writing can cross the miles, it spans cultures and traditions. Writing opens oceans of thought to those you would never hope to come in contact with. Writing is the expression of the soul, the wonder in the imagination, the dream come alive on paper. Now that you're here, share some inspiration by leaving a comment. I'd love to read what you have to say.
