I'm off to Hedgebrook in the morning, and while I am incredibly grateful and excited, I'm also feeling a little batshit crazy.

I'm not sure what my posting schedule will look like, as I'm told it's best to immerse yourself into the magic of the place with as few distractions as possible. I will, hopefully, get lots of writing done as well as respite and the chance to meet some extraordinary women. I might take photos and perhaps post them each day with something or other to keep ya'll entertained, but there'll probably only be slim pickins at the old a moon, worn as if it had been a shell. 

In the meantime, keep abreast of that whole cannabis Big Pharma thing. It's all going down tomorrow in Washington, D.C. when the big guns meet. You know how I feel about it all, and never have I been more sure and committed about an issue. Scroll down to yesterday's post, read, share and join us if you are so inclined. Just click this link: Coalition for Access Now

I miss you already.

P.S. If you want to write me a letter, email me and I'll send you the address!


  1. I hope you have a wonderful time, Elizabeth. I am feeling batshit crazy myself so please take in the magic and allow yourself to release some of the daily responsibility which wears you down. Happy writing! Colleen Burns

  2. I so want to write to you but was too shy to ask if I could!!! Please send me an address when you can.

  3. Have a wonderfully productive time. I am completely batshit crazy. I want to hear all about it when you get back.

    1. I think that's you on the upper left of the photo above, Denise.

  4. Enjoy, immerse yourself in what you love and try and leave the worry behind as I'm sure Sophie and the Brothers are being well taken care of. This is the opportunity of a lifetime.
    I have been meaning to write you but feel that most of what I have to say is all requesting your expertise and can't imagine you have any time to give anymore. I miss you already. Be productive my friend but mostly be free and take care of yourself.
    Catherine Louie

  5. Be present with the Sirens and the Muses and refresh yourself.


  6. Have a wonderful time! I'll miss your posts but I'm so excited for your experience already.

  7. What a perfect image, you Mermaid Mother, you!
    Of course I want to write you a letter. Yes, yes, yes!
    But mostly want I want is for you to take each moment and do with it as you desire, leaving guilt and worry behind. No one in the world deserves this experience the way you do.

  8. Enjoy every second! Fingers crossed for the big decisions tomorrow.

  9. Have a glorious time and please send me your address! plantingalongtheverge@gmail.com

  10. Elizabeth, I'm as excited for you as if I was going to be in the next cabin!!! Yes, immerse yourself. We'll be right here. Love.

  11. Time to unplug! Go whole hog, baby!

  12. You deserve this -- WOW! I'm looking at the Hedgebrook website; had no idea something so wondrous existed. Be there for all of us! Total immersion.

  13. Read! Write! Do nothing! Have a fabulous time and more acceptance than expectations. xo.

  14. Have a wonderfully restful and productive time. I love Whidbey Island and find the location turns on my narrative voice. Hope you find it the same for you. Looking forward to hearing all about it. love, N2

  15. Missing you already but looking forward to those photos you promised us. Have a very fruitful, revitalizing time.
    P.S. as you know I'm extremely "so inclined" but can't join the Coalition because I'm an expat.

  16. Elizabeth, I'll miss your blogging, but I hope you seize the opportunity to disconnect for a while and immerse yourself in whatever's going on at Hedgebrook. It's good for all of us to take a break and see where a different path of creativity will lead. As long as you come back! :)

  17. Well, damn. I was so tired last night when I read this post that I thought *you* were going to Washington.

    Now I feel silly!

    Enjoy your time away. xo
