To change a mind, capture a heart. | To sell an organization, tell a story. To tell a story, listen. (Listening is the art; writing is the skill.)
Here's what I do:
Listen, tell stories, analyze, teach (I teach a nationwide class to shut-in seniors through a cool, live TV system). I also make fiction, flash and otherwise. Develop websites. Pretend to speak more French than I do.
And care—I mean literally. In my writing and my work, I'm determined to raise the dignity and efficacy of care work. See my new, back-breaking, life-affirming project.
