Tuesday, June 12, 2018
One morning last week, every computer in the Sisters Library was in use.

They may not have really noticed the beautiful watercolor paintings hanging right above each workstation, but the rich colors and soft textures lent an atmosphere of calm productivity to their tasks. The Friends of Sisters Library Art Committee covers the library walls with color each month.

Writing a memoir is not for the meek! Opening portals into the past, especially places that hurt, may seem counterproductive. I've been asked, "Why do you want to bring that back up again?" and "Why do you want to focus on the bad things? There's so many precious memories to cherish." Those are all good questions to answer. But it's important to remember we're all unique and so are our circumstances. For me, it's all about thinking it through and deciding if looking back can help me heal.
