How do I read the events, situations, circumstances that happen in my life?
I love to read memoir. Books like Anne Lamott’s Traveling Mercies, Kathleen Norris’s Dakota, Cloister Walk and Amazing Grace are favorites of mine. I find myself going back to them because I find snippets of my own experience or a resonance in them that strikes at the heart of things. A Year by the Sea by Joan Anderson is another favorite. I wonder where the titles come from? Are they there before the book is formed or do they rise off of a page as it is being written? Just curious!!
If my/your life was a book what would its title be?

When my students ask what the title should be, I tell them that they may not know what the title is until they are finished. They seem content with that answer and always come up with a title.
