I am so impressed by the life-giving power of literature. ~ Maya Angelou
Writing personal stories is a way of communicating what we value in ourselves and others and in our world. A process of self-evaluation.
Images – the emotions they stir! They become catalysts for ideas for books.
Can you imagine that the sight of a half pint of milk on a lunch tray could cause overwhelming feelings and prompt someone to write about it? Every day in elementary school when I pulled my three pennies out of my pocket to pay for the milk that I knew would only get chucked, I felt real sinking feelings of inadequacy and not being up to the task. My stomach could only hold a few sips.
The other day I saw a book that me feel differently about a little carton of milk. Perhaps not being a big milk drinker as a young child might not have been a bad thing.
Check out this book called “White Wash: The Disturbing Truth about Cow’s Milk and Your Health” by Joseph Keon. It unveils some interesting research. Milk may not be too great for your health which is contrary to what many of us have always thought. The words in this book may forever do away children hearing from their parents “You can’t get up from the dinner table until you finish your milk!”
