First Lesson

First Lesson

Just a few days ago, we were working on an upcoming writing workshop & we were reminded that, for us, there's really no such thing as a teacher, so much as we're all learners having an excuse to look at a thing together. This is a story that Brian wrote about writing out of what we've discovered about that...

It's available as an 11x14 print on acid-free paper with white outer/black inner double matte, protected in a clear poly sleeve.

This the first & most important lesson every writer learns, that words are ever only a memory of the thing itself. Like catching sunlight in your cupped hands so you have it later when the dark comes on. Sometimes, the words, the memory of the light, are all we have to keep us steady until the night ends.
