I write often about the power of story. We tend to take it for granted, story, but it's something incredibly powerful to us as human beings at every stage in life. Research shows that babies who are read to in the womb grow to have a better grasp of language.
As baby boomers age, our culture is learning the importance of sharing their life stories--for themselves and for society.
Ron Gross and Sue Salko, popular contributing writers here at About Continuing Education, are doing their part to facilitate the sharing of these stories. They're offering a series of workshops on Long Island as part of the Long Island Life Review Project. If you're lucky enough to live in the area, you can find details at olderbetterwiser.com.
If you're not that lucky, contact Ron and Sue about modeling your own program after theirs.
