A week from today, I will be sitting on the shore of Squam Lake in New Hampshire taking a writing class, communing with artists and women from all around the country. I'm attending the Taproot Gathering at Squam
. And the best part of this amazing retreat is that my mother with be attending as well. I haven't had this kind of open time with my mom in years. Words can not convey my excitement. I'm so looking forward to it.
It's funny, but I can already feel this magical gathering of people working on my psyche. As soon as I registered for the 5-day retreat, my shoulders dropped, my head cleared up and my sense of artistic purpose came into greater alignment. Is it possible for a lake you've never seen to cleanse your soul before you've even dipped your toes in her waters? I think it is.
This event is being held in association with Taproot Magazine
, which is a fantastic read. I ordered a few back issues and a one year subscription last month. Each issue is wonderfully rich, expertly written and filled to the brim with inspiration for clean, green, soulful living.
