Commonwealth Club Pix

April 3rd, 2011 — 8:17pm

My compadres and I had a fine evening at the Commonwealth Club last week. Davina Baum of Chow moderated and asked us thoughtful questions like “When writing memoir, whose story is it to tell?” Which led us to an interested and lively discussion of how do you choose what stories to tell, and what ends up on the cutting room floor? What were your families’ reactions? Why do you write and why memoir?

Here is a picture from the panel. From left to right is Davina, Romney Steele, author of “My Nepenthe,” me, and Kate Moses, author of Cakewalk.

    I read this book while at Rancho la Puerta. Like Dayna, I have struggled with weght for many years. Maybe it was just the right time and place, but this book made me laugh and cry. And now I am keeping a food log and eating healthier, and I have started to slowly lose weight. Of course — to do anything difficult, you have to practice — duh(as my teens would say). So why didn’t I think of that. Like Dayna, I have found many ways, for many years, to avoid practicing the hard stuff. Thank you Dayna, for your inspiration!!!
