A Taproot Gathering at Squam

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.
