July 27th, 2008

Today is my 23 year anniversary! How sweet is my husband to encourage me to go on this writing retreat? Here we are on our big day quite awhile ago.

I'm still loving that guy oodles! We'll celebrate together on my return. :~)

It's been two days now, and I've rewritten one novel, and completed the draft of another. Success! In between the writing I've:
  • had a hummingbird fly right up and check me out, twice
  • had a deer stroll past me as I typed away on my laptop
  • saw a shooting star
  • crossed paths with two deer on my walk
  • plunged my entire body into the glacier fed river
  • made a collage in my journal of nature bits from my walks
  • delved into both Foolsgold by Susan G. Wooldridge and Marcus Aurelius Meditations. Perfect compliments.
The sights, sounds, and silence have been rejuvenating. And I still have five days left!

The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even
a blade of grass, it becomes a
mysterious...indescribably magnificent
world in itself.
-Henry Miller

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded
to stay out till sundown for going out, I found,
was really going in.
-John Muir

Happy anniversary, Grovers!

Congrats on the writing accomplishments AND the lovely steps-in-time with nature, especially that with the shooting star.
