This three-session course is an exploration of different kinds of special places in our lives: natural and geographic ones that we experience and treasure; social ones that we honor and celebrate; and subjective ones particular to our unique perceptions. A light reading list of excerpts will stimulate discussion and perhaps promote either writing or other creative expressions.
