Journal Entries

Journaling can be an effective way to process our thoughts and feelings in writing especially during these difficult times. It is also a great way to keep our writing sharp and fluid. Please repond in one to two paragraphs to the journal topics posted here, please include your response in the body of the email rather than as an attachment. And remember, we are in this together.

3/30/2020 We are all social beings who thrive on human interaction and during these difficult times many people may be eperiencing feelings of loneliness or isolation. How are you coping with the "social distancing" requirement of this current global conflict? How are you maintaining social contact with others? Do you have any positive tips that may be helpful to others?
