It's been a long time coming...
I've been out of touch.... literally. Not just with my blog, but with myself. I needed to take some time to be still, quiet and just listen... to nature, to the wind, to myself. So I took a 5 day personal retreat and started it off by driving down to San Diego to see the amazing Claire Cook, best-selling author give a talk as her newest book, "Seven Year Switch" was just released and is now in book stores everywhere! I met another twitter friend/author, Dawn Maria, before the talk and had a fantastic dinner. I stayed in San Diego for 2 days, thanks to a generous friend who gave me points to stay at the Sheraton down there. I pampered myself with a massage and sat by the pool reading Claire's book and eating caesar salad and herbal iced tea. I went to sleep early, never turned on the television and slept straight through to the morning...something I hadn't done in - I don't know how long! Wow.. it was amazing...I felt so rejuvenated just by getting that kind of sleep.
I'll share more about my "retreat" and photos too - soon... just wanted to touch base and let you know I'm still here... just working on the "engine" to keep the machine running. Hope you are too!
