Two days together with amazing, creative and generous folks; our annual Immersion class in Crested Butte was a creative love bath this year! We made 4 books in two days, and they were all beautiful even for the sewing-challenged!! At the conclusion of the workshop the group presented me with a gift. Oh my; they were soooo sneaky led by the master schemer, Dennis. What a surprise and what a send off into a bubble of gratitude. Trudy, Margot, Peggy, Kim, DeDe, Debbie, Carol, Alycia, Brends, DK, Sandy and Mr. Delacroix.....wow. Huge thanks for such a heart-full weekend.
My summer teaching schedule in Crested Butte, Colorado, has begun and I always learn so much from the students and the community of creatives. Even though some folks might not self-identify as creative, I find the wide open vistas and magnificent location offers an opportunity to slow down and open up to endless possibilities. There are more trails to explore, more views around the corner, more wildflowers to learn about - just more opportunities to experience "wonder" and amazement. To me, creative energy rides the wave of wonder and amazement. I count every minute here as a gift and every one of my students as a chance to learn and build community.
