I tell stories. I can come to your book-store, your synagogue, your woman’s group, your yoga class, your coffee house, your comedy club, story time, and I can talk and talk and tell you stories. I don’t bring the milk and cookies, but I do travel with all kinds of noshes–one has to have snackies for the road.
I can devise a program suited to your venue–a yoga class and a writing workshop?
A writing workshop for students or widows, for young adults or single dads? A yoga-writing afternoon called kvetch and stretch. A grandchild/Bubby/Zayde afternoon of Yiddish Yoga, gentle stretches and lots of laughter. A moms only yoga class/kvetch session/ women’s issues workshop where we can vent and talk about the real anxieties in our lives–what keeps us up at night? How can keeping a journal, learning some basic yoga, help with these stresses?
