If you’ve ever wished you could sit down with a mother or grandmother – yours or someone else’s – and get their advice or input, here’s your chance to do that.
We are seven women – mothers and/or grandmothers – ranging in age from early 20s to early 80s. Between us we have pretty much done and seen it all, burning some bits and gathering pearls along the way. Aging, Having a Voice, Wisdom, Courage, Love, Loss and Risk are the topics you will find within the pages of this book. From poetry to short story and prose, we share our experiences of some of the profound moments of life. Grab a cup of tea, a glass of wine, or mug of coffee. Get comfortable. You just may find the advice you’ve been seeking and even some you didn’t know you needed.
A year ago I asked my Writers Group if they would be interested in working on a project together: a gathering together, in one volume, the collective wisdom of our circle.
We are seven writers. Some of us are published authors, some not. We range in age from early 20s to early 80s. We represent a variety of cultures from the three countries we were born in and the nationalities that form our heritage. We have lived on four different continents and travelled across a large part of this planet we call home. We are, each of us, far from our place of birth, some more so than others.
We speak English, French and Spanish and bring, along with those languages, the ways of speaking and interacting that our specific to them.
This has been an exciting journey filled with much laughter and a few tears along the way. We have opened our hearts up to one another and to you, our readers.
I am thrilled to announce that 7° Of Wisdom: Welcome To Our Circle is now available on Amazon. You can pre-order the EBook today! The paperback version will be available August 12th. (If you have any difficulty finding it on Amazon, search for Joss Burnel)
