The Long Run Home
Lorraine Bruno Arsenault:
First Michael said, "make a list of the decades of your life. Now think of three interesting experiences that stand out for each of those periods." We did that--the memoir writing workshop participants and I. Using a method he called "Palm-of-the-Hand" writing he encouraged us to put those recollections to paper.
Once I began to write, I didn't want to stop. The memories tumbled forth. I sat at my laptop unmindful of daylight merging to nighttime or of the news happening around me. The words became my breath.
Some of the people you will read about have passed on from this place, but through these stories they continue to live among us. I thank them for their part in making my earthly journey a meaningful and enchanting adventure.
I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
