In March 2014 I started writing to myself from myself
In April 2015 I was diagnosed with stage three tonsil cancer
The body tells stories too you know
They say that throat issues are the story of stifled creativity, swallowed anger and a refusal to change
They say that cancer is the story of deep hurt, longstanding resentment and grief eating away at the self
I had stories desperate to be heard
I had wisdom waiting to be listened to
The safest way for me to listen was with my pen
And it wasn’t about journaling
It was about witnessing. This is how it happened:
Let no mystery confound you
in to the conclusion
cannot be yours
-from Mark Helprin’s Soldier of the Great War
When we bare witness to our own story, we step into the mystery box of our life.

Interested in Writing as Witness, or perhaps Your Living Story?
We can book an hour together – totally on me – to find out if I can speak your language and if I have what you are craving right now.
I usually book Tues-Thursday but sometimes I have surprise windows of time on other days. Send me a message below and I’ll connect back with you okay? I do love a good story…
