One Happy Camper

Hey! I feel like blogging.

It's been 14 days since my last post. (That sounds vaguely like it was overheard in a Catholic confessional, doesn't it?)

The truth is, I could have blogged over the last two weeks, but I didn't. My energy and focus were elsewhere, and that's a good thing.

So what have I been up to?

Retreating in Honesdale with a fetching array of amazing writers. (That's me, to the left, skipping with delight at my good fortune.)

I'm not going to blog about the nitty-gritty of it much (sorry) because part of the joy was simply experiencing the feeling of retreat instead of analyzing it. Enough to say that time to write + supremely funny, compassionate and talented writers + unbelievably yummy food = one happy camper.

I do plan to blog about some of the things I thought about over the week. Stay tuned.


  1. I wondered where you were - I missed you! I'm jealous...

  2. Hahaha...boy you sure look happy! I missed reading your blog but now see the joy the past two weeks brought you so I can't begrudge that! Glad your back. Now I want to go on a retreat.

  3. Welcome back, Happy Camper! We missed you!

  4. I was just reading PW Bookshelf and thinking of where I was sitting the last time I read it. Sniff.

    I love how you're completely airborne in that shot. Whee!

  5. AHHHHH you are so adorable!!!

  6. That is one great equation (I like the ones that have words instead of numbers).
