Slipper Camp: Love in the Time of Intolerance


Four spaces left!!

My next online writing Slipper Camp – Love in the Time of Intolerance – will hopefully inspire you to write about love and the audacity of hope. “Hope is a gift you don’t have to surrender,” wrote Rebecca Solnit, “a power you don’t have to throw away.”

Like the woman in the image above, you will be fighting for love and for hope, and your words will be your weapon. Every word you write will raise money for ACLU, RAISES and IRC, organizations that are fighting the horrific injustices at the Southern border.

I hope you will be one of the 10 writers who will receive illustrated prompts about “Love in the Time of Intolerance” every other morning for 20 days, along with coaching suggestions. You will be writing 1,000 words every OTHER DAY and sending them to me by midnight.

  1. Insanely, with my. Book deadline. Hovering over me like the sword of Damocles, I will participate. Perhaps I can morph context and content into a supportive expression of total support for both our projects!!!! Aloha


  2. Linda, you are an amazing woman and so good at choosing the subjects for your slipper camps! The image you posted drew me right into the push! I won’t be able to join you for this one though. I’ll be in Australia with my brother, Jim. He lost his wife, very unexpectedly, the end of June and I’ve been staying with him in Newbury Park doing whatever I could to “be” there through all the phone calls, visits to the mortuary, memorial service etc. Thank goodness for his glass of “Jack” and my glass of “Sapphire” every night. That sharing of a bit of quiet time with our drinks in hand helped us close up each day of getting through it all. Their daughter, Mandy and her 2 teenagers live near Sydney and it took a while for them to get here. We had the memorial service on August 9th at Canejo Valley Cemetery and I’ve been home for a few weeks. Jim and Mary Jo planned a trip to meet Mandy and the boys at an animal preserve in Brisbane a while ago and Jim still wants to go. He changed the tickets and the accommodations and made me his new traveling  companion. We are sad he won’t have his partner of 50 years with him instead of me but hope to make this an adventure she will be smiling about. So, my dear, I could have just given you a quick “no” about this slipper camp but thinking of you just makes me want to write. Thanks for putting up with me! Are things going well for you and yours? And how is your night bloomer? All the ones in our family have been producing those miraculous flowers, night by night. Jim even got a few blooms a few days after I got home. Much love to you and yours,  RosieSent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone
