A B&B Brief: Sometimes It Never Really Is Too Late

For starters, note the use of the word “Current” in the title of this article from

“At 87, She’s the Oldest Current Peace Corps Volunteer.”

Then, in spite of some of the clichés, e.g. “age is just a number” and “staying active in old age,” enjoy this article about Alice Carter, who finally got around to doing what she’d wanted to do earlier in her life.

At the end of the article, make sure to listen to the NPR interview with Alice. Just over six minutes, it’s well worth hearing her describe her Peace Corps adventure in her own voice.

And this:
 Spring Sale on Private Workshops

I’m offering a 10% reduction in the per person fee for private writing or journal writing workshops.  These are offered in people’s homes for friends, family, book clubs, or writing groups, and on-site for private associations and organizations.

The reduced per person rate is $45 for a 2-hour meeting, with a minimum of 5, maximum of 15 participants. Workshops, which can be scheduled one-time or repeat for two or more sessions, include personal journal writing, memoir writing, and writing family stories.

If purchased by April 30, this reduced rate is good through 2016. For more information, please email me at or call 773.981.2282.
