Following these readings, Elizabeth invites you into your own writing with the following suggestions:
- When did your sense of time “melt away,” as happened for the young Al-Rawi when she was dancing? Describe that moment.
- When have your inner and outer worlds touched? Choose one instance and write that story.
- Consider a small, recent moment of wonder. Describe it in a scene, as Brian Doyle does with his moment in the backyard. What reflections arise for you?
