I almost forgot to light my Hannukah candles last night. A dizzying array of tasks has surrounded me, but I’m hoping to spend the next few days really embracing the idea of light in the darkness, and of miracles, be they the miracle of a little vat of oil lasting 8 days, the few triumphing over the many, or the many little miracles in our own lives–both past and present!
Susan Wooldridge’s workshop, which I attended many years ago, was one of those miracles for me. She is an incredible writer and teacher, and the author of poemcrazy: freeing your life with words and Foolsgold: Making Something from Nothing and Freeing Your Creative Process.

Susan can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, especially if anyone wants to set up a workshop in Minneapolis/St. Paul in the spring. 🙂 Thanks for listening! Another podcast will be posted in two weeks.
P.S. If you’re here for the Hannukah special, today’s offer (one day only) is proofreading services for 75% off, or just $1/page. Send me your manuscript, article or project and I’ll clean up your presentation, correct spelling and grammar errors and edit for space and clarity. Interested? Send me a note or give me a call.
