Last Day of the BEST retreat ever!

As I write this, I'm looking out at Lake Champlain.















The fog glistens from a ray sun fighting it's way through the moist air. Not enough light for a rainbow today, maybe later when I'm on the ferry heading home.

Last night, shortly after midnight, I finished writing the novel I have been working on forever. I keyed in the last word. I realized that this word has a new meaning for me. Instead of running away, I run toward. I have faced all the demons of my adoption.

I want thank everyone at this retreat for their support. Go buy their books!

  1. Joyce - that's awesome! I'm so glad you had a great time. I've been thinking of you. Sounds like the book has a lot of heart. :)
