I was alone at the counsel ring
the quilters...well they never leave their fabrics
and the other students
the glass , wood and paper cutters
man, they are as intense at the writers
But I was not feeling it this time at workshop
I needed some nature
some sunset
some alone time
So I went to cliff and sat
and watched
It was wonderful
...


 
 
 
 
 
 
I was about 30 feet above the lake
and all I heard were the loons
and the quiet motor of a fishing boat
it was so peaceful
Our group was small...nine of us
and only one new one
...it was a nice class
...not much writing came out of it
but some new insights arose from writing about personal stuff
 they always make you dig there those instructors....
I wrote about my Mexican grandfather
.....and my old neighbor Phyllis
I also managed to birth two pretty good haiku
..all in all a nice week

But the heck of thing happened
A woman tripped on the path, on the ascarpment
and went flying head first over the cliff
and fell 30 feet, hitting the side of the cliff half way down
She had been walking with her husband

I am ashamed to say..that is when my writer's brain went into overdrive
...but I won't speak of that..let's just say that I watch too much TV
concerning crime...

She was stabalized and helicoptered to GreenBay...it was surreal watching the rescue
as it got darker and darker
...They told us she had a broken neck,back,leg and ankle
and 80% brusing of her body...the 15ft break in her fall saved her life
or she would have hit pure limestone
....Needless to say it put a cloud over the rest of the week
...
At our last night, when we all do a show and tell of sorts
I read a funny story..the one about Phyllis
not the grandfather one
that one gets put in a drawer for my kids to find when I'm gone
....and they can't ask questions

know what I mean?

    1. It is so nice to go to camp
      ....away from it all
      writing away
      ..but I did call home more this time
      which is breaking the rules
      but I'm old enough to finally
      not obey rules!

  3. What an eventful trip that I am just sorry was clouded over by such a terrible fall--I hope she's okay, and I hope the good times and the beauty of the sunsets are all out weighed by it!

    1. it was shocking knowing how far she fell
      shear cliff
      She lived..so I guess that is the best part
      and the sunsets over Lake Michigan.....
      it is so quiet there on the cliff
      only the birds and you and sound of waves lapping the stone shore below.....
      I communed

  4. I notice that I've been sitting on the edge of my seat (or keyboard) waiting for reflections from your writing excursion to the Peninsula.

    Your sentences and paragraphs are sweetly spaced and are easy on the eye and mind.

  5. The photos are beautiful of the sunset, the woman falling......I just didn't expect that and I'm sure you didn't either. I hope the woman is doing ok. And I hope you are doing ok too....seems that nature is a healing force for you. Take care...

    1. oh it was horrible
      ...shook us all up
      ..hard to write funny stuff after that
      oh well, at least i did write something
      and the sunset...well...it was stunning

  6. That stunning sunset must have been a creative inspiration. My creativity just begins oozing when I am so close to nature.

    1. I guess that is why I can write haikus so well up there
      ....pure inspiration
      and deep thought and observation

  7. I wanted to be there, too. I would have left my fabrics to take a loon walk with you. Where is your retreat held?
    I am so grateful that you continue to put pen to paper.
