Photos from the Writers' Retreat

I'm offline again this weekend, this time to visit my mom in another state. Meantime, please enjoy this little photo essay about my weekend retreat with the Northern Colorado Writers.

My window looked out over the river, so I had the sound of rushing water as white noise during the day and to soothe me to sleep at night. This is where I did all of my writing, unless...






I was eating or socializing and sampling from one of these




 Or attending a round-up meeting 





Or enjoying the fresh crisp air outside





Or just taking pictures for fun.


Regardless of how often I played or ate instead of writing, I still got a lot done and came away motivated and re-energized. Once again, the retreat was a great success.

If I'd indulged in the second photo's items, I wouldn't have written much.

Oh, I long for this kind of retreat. Hoping that I'll get more plugged in to what's available in Colorado. Being on the western slope, in a small town, I feel so isolated! Thanks for sharing your experience.

Pat - It really looks as though you had a great time! And in a beautiful spot, too. I hope your visit with your mother went well.

It was great to share my first retreat with you at SDR...and all the other great writers who were there, too.

Looking forward to next year. I know you'll be there!

(Sorry I didn't leave you more wine.)
