Perfect Timing to be at Writing Retreat, Right?: #sol15 28/31


We have finished for the day.  Just hanging out now, drinking a bit of wine, eating a few chips and talking a lot!  I’m the only one writing at the moment, but everyone shared something from their writing today and powerful, really powerful writing.

I love this group of 14 women.  Many I know well, after a full institute together and then some.

I love the process of writing together, writing off alone, writing and sharing in pairs.  Writing in all its forms with others.  Together and a apart.

It snowed as I drove up to this spot on the Hudson River and hopefully in the morning, we will be out together exploring before we return for morning writing.  I am charged with the capture.

I can’t miss anymore talk so I’m signing off for now.

See you tomorrow.

  1. Oh, this looks like it was wonderful! What an amazing opportunity and gift to be able to have a community of writers. It’s so important as teachers to be engaged, actively, in the practices we teach.
