It has been a while since I've posted, I've been busy and away. First to Artful journey and oh what a delight. This is my 2nd experience with an Artful journey and I was not disappointed. Summer time in the mountain hills of Los Gatos is warm, sunny, the mornings full of misty fog the blows off the hill sides, the evenings rich with golden light. I spent my nights in the little cottage of ST. Claire, my room nestled in the tree tops. Days and evenings were spent in a class room in the Pueblo building with DJ Pettit making one of her fabulous books. Yes I did get it done! I will write more about that on another post. The garden was one of my favorite places protected from the family of deer that roamed the grounds. Flowers hedged the garden path, grapes over hung in the arbors, squash were in full bloom and wind chimes sang in the wind. One tree (a magnolia I think?) had blossoms as big as my head! I spent 3 days doing nothing but being creative, thinking creative and being around creative people. All other thoughts fled my mind for those 3 days and it was such a blessed rest I came away energized and relaxed all at the same time!!
