I am going back to Wildacres this year and I couldn't be more excited! I am so happy that I was accepted for a two-week residency this year, and I hope to go in the fall.
I plan to continue work I began last year on my memoir about my daughter Molly, hopefully with new writing dredged from deep within when I take Mirabai Starr's workshop "Writing Your Story of Loss and Transformation" this spring.
I hope that Mergatroyd, the spider who shared my cabin with me last year, is gone, at least far far away from any cabin to which I am assigned. And all her sisters and brothers as well. I don't think my nerves can handle sharing the space with another giant fist-sized spider.
Other than never wishing to meet Mergatroyd (and her friends and relations) again, I cannot wait for my next visit to Wildacres. I am so grateful they have taken me back for another residency!
Thank you, Wildacres!
