All In For Clear Thinking and Good Conversation

  • The Lodge at Old Trail 330 Claremont Lane Crozet, VA, 22932 United States (map)

Marietta kicks off autumn as guest speaker for the Third Thursday series at The Lodge at Old Trail. She looks forward to discussing the everyday benefits of mental clarity and genuine conversation. Defining philosophy as “the art of clear thinking,” she applied all the clear thinking she could muster to the emotional and physical challenge of emptying her family home of fifty-six years. The three months of home emptying taught her anew the old lessons in good living, recounted in her most recent book, Leaving 1203. What did she learn? How did an open mind and listening with full attention come to her rescue, day in and day out? Why does good conversation soothe the heart? Does storytelling glue us together? Open to one and all, come on out to The Lodge at Old Trail in Crozet. Stone Soup Books will have all four of Marietta’s books available for purchase and personalizing.
