This weekend the local Bandon Writers' group, was asked to share at the Langlois Library. This was my first public appearance as a writer. I found the courage to stand in front of new friends and strangers and share a piece I had written about the group. I heard all kinds of other voices, some confident and polished, some hesitant,some with rough edges. All of us had unique voices.
The most interesting thing about the event was the confidence we all gained. I felt that I had found my place in this new community. And that is a wonderful accomplishment.
