As the Sisters of the Scorched Soles complete their first working weekend, goals have been established and assignments made. Permission to nag has been given and each sister has a timeline for our projects.
Neda has her historical novel about Frederick Stowe. Jill has her series of short stories about the five senses. I have this blog.
Let the writerly activity begin!
Ready to Begin Again
I didn’t realize how exhausted I was until I reached the bottom of the mountain. How much I needed the comfort of my sisters and the ease of mutual analysis and shared opinion that comes through extended time with close friends!
There is the point at which you can say almost anything, be yourself, unvarnished. It came easy with my St. Joe friends. We had years of history and shared experiences. There was no BS because everyone knew the best and worst already. Nothing to hide.
My first two days were spent stripping the built-up varnish of daily life to let the natural wood of my being breath for a while. I became a spiritual nudist, floating along on a cloud of joy, easily moving toward a positive and enriching purpose.
How fortunate we are to have found each other and to be at this point in our lives where vision can become clear and action can be taken.
