The unforgettable painter | Local news

My three siblings and I lined up for the last time in the main hallway of our parents’ house. We watched with affection and amusement “the infamous Wall of Fame”.

We had spent the week after Mom’s funeral clearing the house, and the only items left to be decided were the family photos hanging in front of us. The images brought tears to our eyes, special memories to our consciousness and the disbelief that we have ever looked so young. My brother commented that it sounded like a 50 year history of hairstyles.

Anyone Can Write

Almost 40 years in the business have taught me that readers are bombarded and inundated with facts. What we aspire to, however, is meaning and connection on a deeper and more universal level.

And that’s why the Gillette News Record will, from time to time, publish stories of students who are in my writing class, which I have been teaching for 10 years in Portland, Oregon.

I take great satisfaction in helping so-called non-writers find and write stories from their lives and experiences. They come into my room thinking they don’t have what it takes to be a writer. I remind them that if they follow their hearts, they will find that they are storytellers.

Like we are all in our hearts.

These stories have nothing to do with Gillette.

However, they have everything to do with life.

If you want to contact me to tell me your story,

I would love to hear from you.
