you are not the content

In 2013, I spoke to a class in New Hampshire about writing and learning and ended with this:  
You are not the content.
I wanted them to understand that they are not the books they read. They are not the grades they earn or the jobs they get. They (and YOU) are more, much more and somehow that thought is being lost in today's world.
We are more than a grade. We are more than a wardrobe or haircut. We are more important than any technology that exists. We are indeed a soul in progress. And each of us has to be more.

My best work

REVIEW: Janice L. Loper 5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional. Truthful. Intensely absorbing. Eloquent. November 29, 2018 Format: Kindle Edition You get such an emotional response from each page. Your mind shouts, “Yes, This is truth.” As you read. Some passages leave you bleeding and stunned. Others have you shaking your head. These collections and musings are quite stirring. The truth can be quite ugly.
