How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Memoirs Writing interest? We are feeling the interest in the community for an initial gathering of individuals, either beginners or seasoned writers interested in a personal journey into exploring their past and creating short narratives of recollections. After the initial session, the two hours will be spent with a couple of activities for the first hour followed by an hour of uninterrupted writing. You will never be required to read out loud to the group what you have written. The Danish scholar Kierkegaard wrote, ”We live life forward but understand it backward.” These writing sessions will give you the opportunity to reflect on what has been and relate it to the full sweep of the past and present. This program is free and sponsored by U3A (www.u3aaxarqui.com). However, we will meet in a cafe so we are expected to consume at least one drink. I facilitated these kinds of writing sessions in Hawaii for 8 years until 2011 for the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. If this interest you or if you want more info, please respond to me at norma2kk at aol dot com as we plan our first organizational meeting for Friday, Sept. 6th from 11am to 1pm in Algarrobo costa. More details will be sent after you reply to me with your reason(s) why you had liked to register. I look forward to hearing from you!! norma in Velez Malaga.
