    Giving Voice to Your Courage with Bob Walicki

    in Writing

    Dorit Sasson of Giving Voice to Your Courage, interviews Bob Walicki, a Pittsburgh based poet and the curator of VERSIFY, a monthly reading series in Pittsburgh, on the role courage has taken him from challenging the traditional roles of what it means to be a sensitive man in a field that looks on his poetic sensitivity as a weakness. 


     


    His work has appeared in HEArt, Stone Highway Review, Uppagus, The Kentucky Review,Grasslimb, and on the radio show Prosody. He won 1st runner up in the 2013 Finishing Line Open Chapbook Competition and was awarded finalist in the 2013 Concrete Wolf Chapbook Competition.

He lives in Verona, PA with his wife, Lynne, and two cats.


     


    Bob Walicki has worked for years in the construction industry and as a plumber. As a poet, he's been the target of prejudices because he didn't fit into those traditional roles. Often he has to hide being a poet in the building trades industry though he says, "recently it's been liberating to write about those experiences in my new chapbook, "The Almost Sound of Snow Falling."

    Carol Weisman-How to Raise Charitable Children on Uncommon Giving

    in Lifestyle

    How many times have we heard ourselves, our friends, or our kids' grandparents complain that children have too many things and don't appreciate any of it? We all enjoy doing things for children - buying them something special, taking them on a fun outing, throwing a great birthday party. But at the same time, many of us fear that without some balance, most children will grow up thinking only of themselves.   This observation is what led Carol Weisman, MSW, CSP, MOM, to write "Raising Charitable Children." In this book, Weisman shares real-life stories collected from allover the world of how parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, scout leaders, friends, next door neighbors, and her own family have either initiated or supported ways to teach children how to give back to those in need. But she doesn't stop there. After each of the stories, Weisman offers specific steps to help anyone translate these ideas into action. In this way, she turns what might have been just a lot of wonderful stories into a set of practical maps or models anyone can use to start making a difference now.
    Carol is president of Board Builders, is an internationally known speaker, author, trainer and consultant. Carol won a Telly Award for her PBS special "Building a Board with a Passion for Mission." She is still trying to figure out how to mount her award on her car. Carol works closely with The Chronicle of Philanthropy doing a blog on fundraising, webinars and an advice column. When not speaking, writing and traveling, she works out with a group of plus-sized runners called "The Chaffing Dishes."

Part adventure story, part searing reportage, part love story."


     


    Pamela's story could just be any Westerner's story, even mine.


    My relationship with understanding the life in the Middle East was also informed by headlines and stereotypes.
