BRINGING JOY TO LIFE
Monday, January 6th ~ 7:00-9:00pm
Do you wonder how and where to find joy, especially in this
world of all too common sadness and suffering? Drawing from
ordinary as well as remarkable ways in which artists, gardeners,
mothers, fathers, and more, have personally found peace and
contentment in life, author Mary O'Connor explores the richest
and most fulfilling hiding places of joy. Learn ways to increase
your powers of observation and creativity while connecting with
the earth, the sea and sky, your body, mind and soul. Come away
with new understanding of how the beauty and power of sweet
spots can make you hum, learn, love, or simply smile. Smiles,
after all, are the signature of joy.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Writer, painter, poet, lover of nature and its
mystery, curious explorer and traveler, Mary O'Connor resides on
the Connecticut shoreline where she finds much of her

Full of Sweet Spots. Journalist, marketer, public relations
counselor by profession, and advocate of the power of writing as

the York Correctional Institution in Niantic, Conn. Mary is the
author of Dreams of a Wingless Child, a collection of widely
received award-winning verses published in nature and
