“We come into and go out of this world alone, but the quality of our lives depends upon the people we touch along the way.” ~ Anonymous
You have a story, a great story in fact. And the people you love and care for are an eager audience, who want to read, discover and learn from your narrative. The Hyphen is your story told through an interplay of visuals (photographic, illustrated etc) and textual components.
Join me in creating a hybrid autobiography-memoir-family photo album that will reach across time and space, will celebrate the life you have lived and honor those YOU have touched and who have touched YOU. This is an opportunity to create your own time capsule. Equal parts therapeutic, reconciling, and inspiring, this opportunity is the perfect way to share the adventures, dramas and tragedies of your life with new insights that can be valuable to your own healing while also being a gift to the family you will eventually leave behind.
Creating this timeline of your life can be a cathartic exercise because we are thinking about our past, the people who may not be in our lives anymore, the relationships we cherish, and the events and occasions that have made our lives extraordinary. The process can simultaneously bring feelings of joy, nostalgia, and melancholy.
Being the author of your life’s story in this new way can:
- bring a different perspective to misunderstandings
- allow for wisdom to reinterpret events
- make way for confessions and forgiveness of yourself and others.
- and reinvigorate gratitude for the people in your life.
Making this book can cost you nothing but time, and conversely pays considerable rewards. Don’t lose another day, make sure your story is told.
