Inhaltsangabe: This book teaches people from age 10 to 110 how easy it is to spin up the kind of short first-person essay that anyone would want to hold onto forever. And because stories enter the heart most directly when they arrive through the ears, it comes with two CDs on which you will hear Terry's own voice, so precisely captured by Eagle Rock Studios that you ll think she is sitting beside you. We all know that the best spur to telling a part of your story is to hear someone else tell a part of his. Hence, in each of the book's 27 chapters, you will first listen to Terry recounting some tales of her own before reading the transcript and sitting down to the actual writing prompts, questions and suggestions that will have you scribbling away like a happy Fourth Grader. Between each story, a fresh musical interlude will allow you to begin traveling down your own long-forgotten paths into that realm of memory, where not the smallest detail is forgotten, and the sparrow does not fall from the tree except that it is noticed and remembered. Because true memory is like that: Permanent. Saved forever. Written on our hard drives. All that we ever saw and thought is still down there , resting at the bottom of the deep pool of Experience, waiting only for the waters to grow still enough to let us peer down and see it. Throughout the book, instructions at the end of every chapter lead you onward. In the one titled What Do You Like? for example, Terry describes six things she just plain loves, then invites you to do the same. In Rules to Live By she tells what her chief guiding precepts are, then asks you to set down yours. The Wicked Elsewhere gets you remembering back to the time you first heard the stunning news about Where Babies Come From. And the bittersweet Take a Sad Song.. recounts a painful experience that is then transformed into something soaringly positive by one of the four inner-city boys who over time have become honorary sons to Terry and her family. And the list goes on... Though most of her chapters will make you laugh in places, every one of them will also make you remember, and sometimes even wipe tears. In general they will help you get at your feelings as, chapter by chapter, you learn to tell your own story. And the more you do this, first on the messy pages of a notebook or even stray napkin, the easier it will become to do it anywhere and anytime, a progression that reflects the message underlying every single thing Terry writes. That message is? That we can - and must - relish our time here. That we can - and must - learn to communicate our truth to those beside us on the journey. In so doing we will forge a new kind of community, in a humane new world where connection and brotherhood are deeply sensed and no one need feel lonely again.
Über den Autor: It was 1980 when Terry Marotta began producing the weekly lifestyle column that today appears in papers from Maine to Florida. Over the years she has written special pieces for many national magazines and won her share of awards and honors too: from Parents Magazine, from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists and from her peers in the NASA-sponsored competition to send a journalist up in the Shuttle. Ravenscroft Press has given the world several of Terry s works and is delighted that this December will see the release of her latest: an audio book which comes with a 142-page transcript of everything she says on the CDs. Still Following the Trail of Breadcrumbs teaches people how to begin the journaling habit and is designed to be listened to as well as read because stories that come in through the ear travel direct to the heart. As Terry explains it, This happened to me one person says, laying a hand upon our arm. And this happened to me, his listener instinctively responds. And when two people reach this moment a sense of deep peace flows into both hearts, along with the belief that of course a person can set down on paper what is real for him; of course she can journal, because to journal is only to say what one saw, or heard or felt in ones time here. We are all given a unique and true voice at birth, says Terry; this book simply shows people how to use it. Besides writing and tending to her family Terry says she toils away at a cardio-health and weight-training regimen, helps all who ask with their essays and compositions and finds herself absolutely thrilled to have been recently voted into the Old Cambridge Shakespeare Association, which has been meeting monthly since the 1880s for dramatic readings of the Bard s many plays. She lives just north of Boston with her husband David and several sweet elderly animals in the same tall-ceilinged old ship of a house where they raised a lively gang of young people, all grown and gone now, leaving behind only three closets full of raggedy flannel shirts, a few cherished never-throw-these-out-Mom posters, and a truly uncountable number of semi-damaged CDs and cassette tapes.
