But my BIG NEWS is that I'm leaving in a few days to attend Kindling Words, a workshop for children's book creators. In celebration of their 20th Anniversary this will be the first overseas retreat in Manchester, England. I'm really excited about it, especially since I've barely left my home except for work, walking the dogs or a trip to the grocery store in Fort Collins the last three years. So this should be a life altering experience. I'll post photos when and if I return.
