I was privileged to receive some much needed magic in my life, recently.
The material that was presented, and the instructors, themselves, were invaluable. Each one of them taught us something different, new, and even fascinating.
The classes were a great source of information which I intend to follow, as I attempt to publish my first children's book. But even more than that, the facility and surroundings seemed to ease my mind and allow me to open up.
I had several new ideas and I started writing a few stories. I even wrote a children's poem about an owl.
It was about 5:30 am on the second day, I was outside looking up at the stars. I saw Orion, Taurus, and the Seven Sisters. I was also fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of three shooting stars, all of which I wished upon. I also saw one star that slowly moved across the sky for about ten seconds, until it turned out its light and said goodbye.
As I stood there admiring the early morning sky, I heard a noise in the distance. It wasn't something I was familiar with. At first I thought it was a dog or a wolf. As I listened closer, I heard a hoot-hoot-hoot, hoot-hoot-who. I think that was the first time I ever heard an owl.
Not only has my trip
Listen to your heart, it may be trying to tell you exactly what you need. Embrace the magic that surrounds you. Be open. Be honest. And love like no other.
Thank you, Bobbie Combs, Harold Underdown, Jo Knowles, Lindsay Barrett George, Sneed B.
I'd also like to thank each of my classmates. It was great meeting all of you, you made the workshop fun and your spirits are motivating.
Finally, thank you, Jo Lloyd and Kent L. Brown, Jr., without whom my trip would not have been possible.
The Highlights Foundation puts on a wonderful workshop program. I would recommend it to anyone.
