Thread Name: Sandy Paton - write your autobiog!
Subject: RE: Sandy Paton - write your autobiog!
Poor Sandy, they're gangin' up on ya. Of course I agree with most of what's been said--all those great stories need to be preserved/shared.

It is possible to get a real good start on such a project without anyone, Sandy or anyone else, having to "write" anything. Treat it like an oral history project--just set up a tape recorder on the kitchen table and have conversations about what happened way back when. A series of these informal interviews can provide a wealth of material, and it's fun to do! I'd love to facilitate this project myself (not having heard a great many of the stories referred to above), but as Sandy and Caroline know better than just about anyone, I'm not always real good at actually completing such projects. Besides, I'm too far away. But I'll bet a few of you local Connecticut types could make a go of it. Why not?

Love ya, Sandy -- Nancy
