Let’s all count our Blessings
Hello FAR-Westerners and extended family!
Our Lockdown Lemonade blog recently reached an incredible milestone of fifty-five entries from fifty-five different family members! As we enter this season of thankfulness and gratitude, our Lockdown Lemonade team would like to hear from YOU so we can multiply our blessings through sharing.
Please send us a few lines describing what you are most grateful for as we head into this holiday season. We will publish as many as we can in our November 25 Indigenous People’s Day/Thanksgiving edition.
Please email your entries to JulieZ@far-west.org and firstname.lastname@example.org by NO LATER THAN Sunday, November 21.
Thank you from your grateful Lockdown Lemonade team!
Lockdown Lemonade is FAR-West’s response to the dramatic and drastic shifts of 2020’s global health and economic crises. For many, this cultural reckoning and political upheaval spurred a period of personal reflection and the discovery of coping mechanisms some of us didn’t even know we had. Lockdown Lemonade is a look at the bright side. With this collection of flash creative nonfiction, brief personal essays, recollections, and musings from members of our community, we hope to shine a light on the best things that can and have come out of the most challenging of times. This column will continue on a weekly basis and postings will be released at 10 AM Pacific every Monday, so watch for them! For guidelines and submission details, please contact Julie Zipperer at julieZ@far-west.org or Marlynn Block at email@example.com Submissions will be posted based on approval from the Lockdown Lemonade Committee.
