Penny-Anne was the first person to comment on my ‘Today’s Truths’ post about mentors!
Here is her comment:
Thank you Vanessa, for the kind words. I just can’t stand to see such a light as yours down in the muckity muck. My first mentor was a Roman Catholic nun, Sr. Mary Joel Zobro, who was so taken with the way I wrote my essays and reflection papers, she practically ordered me to publish! Not long afterward, a publication in New York picked up my first article. She is now, and always will be a stalwart champion of my work, and I truly don’t know where I’d be without her.
Penny-Anne will be the proud owner of a copy of ‘Writing Down The Bones’ by Natalie Goldberg.
Thanks for reading everyone!
