DOING SIXTY TO SEVENTY

For more than thirty-five years in public and international  education, I’ve had the opportunity to travel the globe on U.S. government programs–from a Peace Corps Volunteer to English Language Fellow and Fulbright, to English Language Specialist and ESN Coach.   I’ve kept my writing from  those journeys–in my twenties in journals and letters; in my thirties in aerograms and on postcards; in my forties and fifties, in emails and blogs.

Now in my late sixties, I’m taking my time to dive into the archive–the print and digital journals, photo albums and digital photos, slides and VHS videos stored in boxes and binders and bins–to reflect on and explore my own identity through narratives shaped by memory, emotion and life experience. This process of engaging in self-reflection and digital creation–what might be called curating a museum of the self–can foster a deeper understanding of one’s life journey and invites others to make human connection.

I’m working with ArcGIS StoryMaps to geotag digital stories, texts, and poems–from Santa Fe to Samarkand, from Boulder to Ulaanbaatar–on the interactive maps.  Thank you for taking the journey with me to Central Asia in Love in the Fergana Valley and for sharing my process of recovery in the Corona Poems.   

I hope you are inspired to try digital storytelling as a medium in your own creative exploration.

“Jode’s contemplative pace and creative voice are juxtaposed with narratives from the home, the road, the family, and the bone. I finish watching: I crave to create.”

“You touch hearts; you creep into lives and touch minds; you open channels.”

“I’m exploring the other half of the circle – something that is especially hard in this either/or culture that tries to make us into one thing for life and treats change as if it were a rejection of the past.”

Doing Sixty and Seventy, Gloria Steinem
