Whole Holes

Prompted by my courses at Simon Fraser University, I have been enjoying the writings of Carl Leggo, this time in Life Writing and Literary Métissage as an Ethos for Our Times, co-written with Erika Hasebe-Ludt and Cynthia M. Chambers.

These words especially resonated with me as I dig more deeply into the practice of life writing. At the beginning of this semester, I feared that I might run out of subjects to write about. Now it feels like every writing prompt spawns handfuls of more ideas. The possibilities are a widening spiral, a depthless (w)hole.

One response to “Whole Holes

  1. Hey Suzanne, when I read this the first thought I had was wanting to use the word openings instead of holes. I find it stimulating to explore those avenues that are opened up through others ideas stimulating a portion of ourselves that has remained untapped or stagnant for so many years. This blog is such a fantastic exploration on your journey through your Master’s. I look forward to reading and seeing more.
