Texas Public Matters (TPR) re-aired our Christmas stories and stories for Mother’s Day. We recorded for National Day of Listening. Our writing group, Las Mujeres, reorganized. Some of us stayed together and our new name is “The Next Chapter”.
The National Day of Listening
We invite you to listen to stories from The Next Chapter writers (formerly Las Mujeres).
Notes From 2009:
I myself find it helpful to take paper and pen, my small audio tape recorder, extra tapes and my camera when I venture to my mother’s house. Sometimes, quite unexpectedly, in the middle of a conversation at the kitchen table or out on the back porch, I hear ‘pearls of wisdom’ or treasures from our family’s life. My mother and sisters are accustomed to my recorder now. However, I ask permission before I turn it on.
What are your favorite ways of recording the stories of your loved ones?
Tell us and pass on this information to your family and friends!
