Last evening I did something I’ve never done before. I participated in a workshop with Canadian writer, Sally Ito, in which we collaborated to write a form of Japanese poetry called Renga. I was in a group with three other women, two from Manitoba and one from Alberta. A cross country collaboration!
It took me a little out of my comfort zone—writing poetry with others is no easy thing—but it was refreshing and fun (and gave me an excuse to leave another, less fun, meeting early). I appreciate the ability to virtually gather with people who share similar interests.
With all its not-so-good things, it’s still a beautiful and wonderful world technology has opened up for us.
