Go from Corona-Can’t to I CAN

A phrase heard quite often throughout the quarantine is “I can’t.” As in: “Ever since the quarantine started, I can’t seem to drag myself out of bed before 10 am. All my clients have cancelled their accounts and I can’t get work. I wanted to take this time to plot my next career move, but I’m stuck. I can’t figure it out.” If you keep using that lousy 4-letter word with the soul-crushing apostrophe and t, then you’ll always convince yourself you can’t do anything you want to do. So, do you want to turn your can’ts into CANS? If you’ve gotten past that question and you’re reading this sentence, then you do, and Andrea Mastrobattista, AKA InspiraWoman, can help you. Join Andrea and her on-line community, the InspiraFam, in her Zoom Room and let them take you from Coronacation to ACTIVATION! It never fails… When someone in the room shares their story, Andrea and/or someone in the InspiraFam community says, “I hear you and I can help you.” Was that a sigh of relief you breathed when you read those words? Do you feel the stress starting to leave your body and the positive energy flowing in? Do you want more of that feeling? Then, RSVP by emailing Andrea at opinspiration@gmail.com and she’ll send you the Zoom Room link and the Super Secret Password.

Death Comes for the Archbishop

Saturday Samplers (on Friday)
Death Comes for the Archbishop (1927) • Willa Cather
Willa Cather’s best known novel is an epic–almost mythic–story of a single human life lived simply in the silence of the southwestern desert. In 1851 Father Jean Marie Latour comes to serve as the Apostolic Vicar to New Mexico. What he finds is a vast territory of red hills and tortuous arroyos, American by law but Mexican and Indian in custom and belief. This book discussion will take place virtually. If you have not participated before, click here to register and we’ll send a link the day before the meeting.

"Beyond the Ghetto Gates" - With Author Michelle Cameron

Join us to hear author Michelle Cameron speak about her newest book, “Beyond the Ghetto Gates,” which was published this earlier this year.  A coming-of age story wrapped up in startling historical events, the book reveals a time in history few know about. Influenced by her experience living in Israel for more than a decade and learning of Napoleon’s history with Italy’s ghetto gates, Ms. Cameron, who is director of the Writers Circle, an NJ based organization that offers creative writing programs, weaves a dynamic tale shedding light on the conflict between assimilation and preserving religious tradition. This program will take place online. Click here to sign up and we will send you a link on the day before the program.
