As One of You Observed: Yes I do long for a Group

Published January 23, 2019 by Nan Mykel

My current posting on facebook:

What’s happened to Face Book? Unexplained (to me) Changes
 New fiends (Freudian error, I promise) have unexpectedly been added. I’m not agin’ them, I just don’t know them. Yet. Looks like I will soon, tho.
 I sat down to tap out the announcement that I’m contemplating starting a new group. It will begin the Sunday during

I wonder if…

which the first person joins. Don’t call me, please. I prefer e-mails, I even answer them. I’m deaf and tongue-tied on the phone, as many marketers will vouch. Re the envisioned weekly group, tentatively known as the confidential Women’s Poetry Support Group: 

Membership initially limited from 2 to 12 females by birth or choice. Time one hour with freedom always to go longer. Revolving leadership after group has solidified. Members will either bring a poem they have currently or formerly authored which either expresses or elicits feelings. Ideally members would provide readable copies of their poem so members can read and listen at the same time. Group will begin with each member stating how they are feeling at the moment, and the immediate antecedents. Goal is growth rather than fixing, like the spirit of the former women’s consciousness raising groups. Rudeness, aggression, hostility, put-downs or non-acceptance will be greeted with the banging of metal on metal (spoons battering pans).

 Preference will be given to those not currently in another poetry group. The group will not aim to siphon off other poetry group’s members. I hope to meet in my apartment Sunday nights at 7 pm; parking across the street at the credit union.

Obviously there will be no videotaping of meetings.   nmykel@gmail.com

  • Nan, it looks like you have your telephone number displayed on your facebook page? You said people shouldn’t phone but rather email. There are many spammers trawling social media sites looking for phone numbers and other personal details of users. To protect yourself, take it off. I’m surprised you haven’t been phoned before. Take off your email too. People can connect on facebook and once you know you can trust people you can give out details. Don’t supply your home address on facebook or anywhere else AT ALL!!

    Take care Nan.
