Greetings! Happy Spring! It'll be here any moment. I've been busy doing a diverse array of activities that create this amazing life I lead. I feel so very blessed. Each morning I begin my day journaling or writing Morning Pages if you are a fan of The Artists Way. It's the perfect way to start my day and begins with gratitude for this awesome life.

 

“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.”
Meister Eckhart

 

I recently had a chance to proofread a novel for an award winning playwright and novelist. I was honored to be asked and enjoyed reading the compelling story that for me, was a real page turner. I was also pleased (with myself) that I found enough errors to feel purposeful in the endeavor.

 

I also had a new opportunity to write for Seasons Magazine and my story will be in their first shoreline issue, being released in early April.

 

The annual Creating a Writing Life Retreat for Emerging Writers is Scheduled for June 18 at Mercy By the Sea in Madison, CT and I'm overjoyed that I was able to secure Leslie Browning as our guest speaker this year. Leslie is a poet, novelist and owner of Homebound Publications. I can't wait to hear her story and what she has to share with us about publishing. Check out the Writer's Retreat page for details or contact me to register. If you haven't attended before, it is a small, intimate group setting and fills up fast.  It is a place for inspiration and encouragement to dig deep into honoring and celebrating the writing life. So register early. (Second date has been added - July 30th)

 

I'll leave you with this thought.... "Always say "yes" to the present moment...Surrender to what is. Say "yes" to life - and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you."   ~ Eckhart Tolle
