Leaving a legacy
Golden Happenings Senior Group enjoyed a journaling workshop on Wednesday, Nov. 8, by Melissa Vander Plas, a newspaper editor with the Bluff Country Newspaper Group. Twenty members took part in this event learning the benefits of keeping a journal. The group was told to write about family and everyday events that are special to you and put stories into a binder or journal with photos. Some of the writing exercises completed by the members including writing paragraphs to the prompts, “What is your favorite book and why?” and “Write about someone who is special to you.” Great discussion followed. Members were told a journal is a safe place to be yourself, to feel, think observe and dream. It was also mentioned that journaling was a form of personal expression and can occur in many ways: writing, drawing, photos, newspaper articles, painting or many other forms. “I took part in my first journaling exercise after my husband, Don, died. It was given by a Hospice Social Worker. I found it very relaxing and, yes, healing!” shared Betty Dowe. After the program, soup and dessert were served and the discussion continued! After the program participants all agreed with the presenter that writing can be fun! COURTESY OF DENNIS DEKEYREL
