Come write your own myth in prose or poetry and make a mask about this time in your life. Hear sensual tales and poems, ancient and modern, and look at Native American and other artful masks as echoes of inner openings to explore. Choose bone, leaf, shell, or cone, or bring your own symbolic items to embed in the mask, which we’ll wear in a reading on Sunday after discovering our own images of the desert. Please bring a notebook and pen/pencil.
