A retired legal secretary, Sherrey Meyer grew tired of drafting and revising pleadings and legal documents. She had always dreamed of writing something else, anything else! Once she retired she couldn’t stay away from the computer, and so she began to write. Among her projects is a memoir of her “life with mama,” an intriguing Southern tale of matriarchal power and control displayed in verbal and emotional abuse. Sherrey is married and lives with husband Bob in Milwaukie, OR.

Personally, if confronted with writer's block, I turn to another activity, i.e. a walk outside, reading, a household chore, quilting or knitting. Usually a change of activity releases me from whatever I'm writing and opens my mind to a freedom not present when I was writing. With a clear mind, I can usually return to writing and pick up where I left off.(less)

Be Present

Last Sunday the cover art on our worship bulletin struck a chord with me. Not so much because of the artwork. It was, as always with me, the words. I’ve pondered these words over and over again. Finally, today I wanted to know more about who chose them. Who created the image?   So I […]
