We have been away at a songwriter's workshop this weekend. I was kinda bummed about not cooking my traditional Irish meal but we needed the getaway. Workshops are fun, inspiring and grueling. I learned a great deal, made some new friends, saw some old ones, got out of my comfort zone and met two wonderful successful songwriters, Tom Kimmel and Sally Barris.. Tom and Sally were creative instructors who joyfully shared their knowledge of the craft.
The workshop was in the perfect setting for creativity, The Alabama Folk School located at Camp Mc Dowell about an hour from where we live.. Rustic cabins, beautiful woods and art made a space that really got the creative juices flowing.
We had a great time. I am drained. Glad to be home, I think the dogs missed us. I missed them.
Tomorrow is the first day of spring. Wishing everyone a day of warmth, kindness and joy.
