More from the archives

We continue to go through the Lee & Miller archives and as time permits will be adding old stories and splinters as we get to them. Here’s one that hasn’t been seen for awhile.

Running The Race was written by Steve and published in Dream Again: A Journal of Spirituality and Madness, back in 1995, as a follow-on for a workshop he did for his then job as Citizen Access Specialist for the Citizen Access Network . That basically meant he was  Sysop and Chief Trainer for the Maine Meeting Place BBS in its role as an attempted community center for people who, by the of their personal situation and issues, were living in isolation.  Some were physically disabled, some had mental health issues, and all needed a way to communicate.

Many of the participants in the workshop, which took place off-season at a well-known Maine winter resort, wrote or tried to write about their difficulties. Poetry, fiction, screeds, agendas, books — all were in evidence at the workshop. There were lots of plans, lots of big ideas, lots of goals … and eventually two or three actual publications. Steve was invited to contribute on the first issue’s theme, which was isolation.
