Today in: studying creative writing with Samiya

For my Somatic Writing: Memoir class, I took my students to be with the Belmont Goats. Together with them we wrote, we petted, we followed and were followed, we were supremely in our bodies, we interacted with the bodies and horns and teeth of our new friends. Also: we met a chicken. 

I can't wait to see next week what they've done with what they wrote today! Very exciting. (Insert goat scream!)

"I felt most safe when..." 

"I felt most safe when..." 

"I felt most seen when..." 

"I felt most seen when..." 

Writing through memory and desire...with goats!

Letting ourselves be cuddled. Be friended. Be vulnerable in the outdoors. Be chewed upon.
