Encouragement and Inspiration
( A Word from L.T., our fearless leader)
Dear Pagoda Writers and all creative souls,
Our next workshop will be on Saturday, September 9th from 1 - 3 p.m. at the address below.
Please come prepared to share your thoughts and writings about our topic with Emily. Please view our website to learn more about Emily and future workshops at pagodawriters.com.
You are welcome to bring friends and anyone interested in writing, poetry, art and music, etc...all these are the intricate pieces of our human development. As we move forward in experiences, age and learning about ourselves and others we realize that we are truly united in spirit. This we have seen from the devastation and heroism from Hurricane Harvey and the world events swirling around the globe. Our hometown of Reading and Berks County is full of wonderful people who live, work and volunteer to make Reading a vibrant and welcoming place for everyone as the 'This Is Reading' event at the Franklin Street Station showed us last month which drew hundreds of people and a multitude of fascinating stories about the people, places and events which make up our long history of growth, change and revitalization. Find your talents and gifts and share them with others who need hope and help...remember, Faith is a remedy for Fear.
"Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. You cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the universe or be crushed by it.
You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors."
- Andrew Boyd, Daily Afflictions: The Agony of Being Connected to Everything in the Universe
Please keep your thoughts and prayers for CJ and her husband Bob who was in a horrific car accident recently. Bob is recovering and your kind and thoughtful messages would always be appreciated.
RSVP's are always encouraged so we can plan for seating. Thank you all for your support of the Pagoda Writers. We look forward to seeing you all next Saturday. The address is 1840 Lorraine Road two streets above Hampden Blvd. in Reading, PA 19604.
