It's actually a lovely place for most creatures, including people, at least at this time of year. This morning when I'm on our walk, I'll be thinking of my usual Saturday morning walk with many more of us ladies enjoying the fall colors. I'll be present in spirit in Bellingham, but I'll be here on Vashon.
I miss my normal routine a little, but it's been such a fruitful time here as I spend my days writing and sharing, with me getting all fired up once again to find a way to write some fiction pieces, short stories, something to spice things up. A little cinnamon, nutmeg for sure, and cardamom suitable to the time of year. Fall is such a pensive time for me, with the return of the rain and cold weather, instead of waking each day to the early sun and birdsong. Yep, the season has definitely changed and I must change along with it.
it is a serious thing // just to be alive / on this fresh morning / in this broken world. (Mary Oliver)I hope you have a wonderful day out there while I enjoy the final weekend of our retreat on Vashon Island, a magical place.
It looks and sounds marvelous, Jan. We are headed to the beach on this glorious Thanksgiving weekend!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy that the magic remains and that you are there. Miss you all. Enjoy. Drink it all in.ReplyDelete
It sounds absolutely blissful - and I am very glad you are revelling in it.ReplyDelete
Looks like that rain is just going to happen at night, which is fine. We got a whole .01 of an inch last night.ReplyDelete
It has been a good day so far, going to a glass sale, having breakfast and good conversation with our son Jake, talking with Jill on the sidelines while watching Irene play soccer, getting a little work done outside, putting things away. Life is good, even in this "broken world", and fall is now happening and that is OK too.
You certainly found a nice place to spend pleasant fall days.ReplyDelete
Glad you're enjoying the retreat, and getting inspired.ReplyDelete
I am glad you are having a good time:)ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you are getting this opportunity!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you are getting all enthused about some serious writing. Hope you keep the need going. You have the talent for it.ReplyDelete
Love that you can share your day with non-fearful deer. How neat.
It's wonderful to get away from it all in a secluded cottage. Hope you had a great time.ReplyDelete
As the seasons change and for the better....so do you dear one!!ReplyDelete
Now, question: your writing....do you ever share your work? Do I need to look somewhere else to find them?
I feel so lazy now compared to you. I need to get out and do some exercising too. What a wonderful retreat for you to be at!ReplyDelete
Change is the spice of life. Enjoy it.ReplyDelete
