Detailed Ratings

Kim Stafford, with Joanne Mulcahy, by supporting the highest of writing goals in The NW Writing Institute, gave me and fellow students a target for drawing up all our culture offered in order to add to it our personal experiences and perceptions. Now, in seeking to continue that beginning, as one considering my vintage years, I believe the expressions I choose to share, and leave as a legacy, can have valuable impacts upon future generations. As we age, the wisdom of the past becomes of immense importance. How do we translate all we lived and learned into an inheritance for those following? It is because we learn as we live, if we choose to continue to stretch and grow, that we may offer those younger the `Shards and Songlines` of our path-building. We may come to value -- more than when we lived it -- trails we doubled-back on; not just to re-do mistaken choices, but to re-evaluate those we may have chastised ourselves for living as we did, later coming to appreciate they added wealth to our perceptions in writing next chapters. I wrote `The Year The Horses Rolled Up Hill,` in this program. Later, a fellow student visited my home in the Columbia River Gorge; checking on the hill and the horses, she may have needed to verify all I wrote made possible all I accomplished, because of those horses` vitality and Springtime exuberance. Life plays with us. How fortunate if we come to realize that there are formal opportunities to find ourselves, when we play back.
