CTW008 The Romance of Our Nostalgia with Lauren Speeth
Lauren Speeth is an award-winning filmmaker, writer, and owner of Elfenworks Productions LLC. She is the author of Thread for Pearls, a historical fiction novel based in the early 1960s and 70s which shares what she understands as the fundamental human experience of hope and resiliency. Lauren is a master storyteller with wide-ranging interests in everything from the American experience to Irish spirituality as well as music about love and life.
Lauren joins me today to discuss her new novel and what motivated her to write her book. We discuss how her book inspires others to embrace hope in the face of adversity. We discuss the importance of creating a vision for each decade of your life and why she considers the kind of person she wants to be when creating her vision. We also discuss the role of idealism while creating your vision, how holding onto hope keeps you feeling young, and the role that fear and hope play when creating a vision for your life.
“We can all learn resiliency of hope.” - Lauren Speeth
