Join writer/artist Jill Althouse-Wood for her annual journal-writing event at the Buzz Ware Village Center in Arden, DE, on Sunday, January 7, from 3-5 PM. For this year's workshop, we will start by exploring ritual, habits and practices using writing prompts. And to ignite our journal writing practice--as a catalyst for other habits we are trying to foster--we will be collaging personal journals to use throughout the year. If you are new to journaling, want to deepen your existing practice, or just have a desire to hack a few of your life routines, this afternoon will give you a push. Bring a pen or writing implement. All other supplies will be provided.
 Open to all. The cost for this workshop is $20 prepaid through PayPal by Friday, Jan 5. $25 at the door.

Even as a child, Barbara Jean Ellington knew her grandmothers were lesbians, a truth they never concealed. During BJ’s summer vacations at their home on Blue Lake, Nonna and Lena taught her to swim and play cards, provided a lively contrast to BJ’s conservative parents, and comforted BJ when her first summer romance ended abruptly and without reason. Now, years later
