I’m imagining my next life by designing a business card. Doesn’t everyone do that?
I was invited to participate in a journal workshop for cancer survivors at Fighting Chance, a resource center for cancer patients in Sag Harbor. It takes place over four Saturdays, and I went to the first session this past week. I almost decided not to go. After all, haven’t I written enough about my cancer journey?
This is different. It has a structure, and writing assignments, and mentors. It’s challenging me to take what I know about myself and reflect on it, turn it inside-out if I want. And I can share the experience with some people who might be new to personal writing. I’m in, and gladly.
Imagining a next life does not require a clean slate.
But a business card, now…
