This week I nestled to write in a luxurious vacation home in the mountains above Edwards, Colorado, a gift from Kay Johnson’s sister-in-law.
Kay and I reunited through Facebook and hadn’t seen each other for twenty-eight years. Previously, we had danced in an international performing arts team together.
Along with our two children, Elya and Michael, we spent our days writing, brainstorming ideas, sharing stories, eating, and exploring.
Just four writers determined to see where our creative inklings would lead us.
I haven’t done much blogging, but this week has delighted me in amazing ways. What an indulgence to awaken and write with deer grazing outside the window.
Yes, our vision for collaborative projects did take form. Each of us enjoyed nature and creativity in new and unique ways; however, the most precious take-away I left this mountain retreat with was a renewed appreciation for the generous nature of God. I don’t need to have all of the answers concerning my future direction as a writer and artist. Today my heart fills with the wonder of creation and gratefulness for the blessings I received this week on a writing retreat.
