What makes good haiku? Haiku is an excellent, calming practice for strengthening wonder and contemplation. Yet good haiku goes beyond the 5-7-5 syllable structure that students are often taught in school.



Join published poet Melanie Weldon-Soiset for a voyage through this famous poetic form. During this introductory workshop, we‘ll explore key characteristics of haiku, look at classical and contemporary examples, and have ample quiet time to write our own [in the beautiful setting of the gardens of the Franciscan monastery]. There will then be time for optional sharing, guided by the comfort level of each participant. By the end of the workshop, participants will gain deeper appreciation of haiku traits, practice at engaging this contemplative form, as well as drafts of one or more of their own haiku. This workshop is open to all levels of poetry experience, including novice. Masks are optional. Please bring a journal and pen with you.

Your Digital Life After You Die

So many of us have created a virtual online digital world including email accounts, social media, and the many other accounts we may have set up over the years. But will happen to our digital lives after we die or due to health reasons become unable to manage them? Pam Holland, President of TechMoxie will discuss steps you may take now to plan for your "digital estate". Pam will cover the options for your social media accounts such as creating a memorial page and how to ensure that a designated family member or executor is able to access your accounts in order to follow your wishes.
