Here's a photo of members of the Montana Writers Retreat. (Or the Naked Montana Writers as we began to call ourselves but that’s another story.)
Stories about riding a horse from Mexico to Canada, looking up an old boyfriend from Junior High, switching jobs, getting through a divorce, an addiction, a near death experience, moving a father into a retirement hotel, a mother getting stabbed, a daughter’s illness, memories of things going haywire at a First Communion – these were just a few of the stories written and then read at the long table on the screen porch at the cabin every morning and afternoon.
In theory giving a retreat in Montana sounded really good to me – but many things in theory sound good to me and don’t always work out the way I planned. But this worked. Really worked. Thank you Phyllis, Lauren, Denise, Rob, Joanne, Deirdre, Kara, Jenny, Quenby, and Debra. Come back next year.
