Guys-- please forward to interested writing women, if you've got the
Subject: June WomanWords meeting-- Monday evening, 6/24/02
This is your reminder about the June WomanWords meeting-- that's right:
meeting, as in singular. You'll recall that, every other month this
year, we will not have a Sunday session. This is one of those months.
We meet Monday evening next, June 24, 2002, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at Albany
Lifeworks Inc. in the Shaker Park West office building complex in Colonie
(directions below). As usual, bring writing utensils & paper (or laptop,
if you choose), and your Muse. Suggested donation is $15/$10 seniors but
don't stay away if you're a little short this month-- no woman gets
turned away for such a silly reason.
This month's theme is Women of Courage. Think about what courage means
to you... and recall those women that you consider to have performed
courageous acts. They may be famous... or not so famous. What
courageous acts have you performed? Sometimes getting out of bed in the
morning is an act of courage. Sometimes just saying what you think or
believe was an act of strength that no one else but you (or someone you
know) seemed willing to do. I have heard a definition of courage that
says it doesn't mean lack of fear but, instead, fear plus action. Do you
agree with that? BRING A PICTURE or some token representing one or two
Women of Courage that you admire/ would like to emulate/ are grateful for
their having cleared the path before us-- we'll put them on the center
Try to let me know via e-mail or phone (home message machine-
518-869-1706) that you will attend. Don't stay away if you forget to
"sign up"-- you just might want to bring a pillow in case we run out of
Hope to see you there!
Albany Lifeworks is in a building in the same complex as where Mandala
Center for Creative Wellness was located (where WW met for over 4 1/2
years)-- you just turn into the complex and go to the end of the drive &
it's on the left.
If you never got to Mandala, here are more details-- from Route 5
(Central Avenue coming out of Albany), take right onto Route 155 (New
Karner Rd.)(almost to intersection when you pass Saturn dealer on your
right on 5). -- Route 5 is State Street coming from Schenectady, by the
way, and you'd take a left onto 155 coming from that direction (almost to
intersection when you pass Price Chopper on your right). NOTE: this
intersection has 2 gas stations, a bank (HSBC or something) and a
Rite-Aid on the corner. Shaker Park West is exactly 4/10 mile from the
intersection of 5 & 155, on the right. The sign for it sits a little
ways in from the road and there are some trees in front of the driveway
just before you get there-- so it comes up on you fairly quickly. Closer
to the road, near the Shaker Park West sign, is a taller Rosetti-Falvey
real estate sign. You turn into the complex just befor the signs (if you
pass the signs, you've miss the turn).
As noted above, go to end of driveway & it's the building on the left.
It's upstairs and, unfortunately, the building does NOT have handicap
