The Vermont Adventure – day nine


Pictured above is Noble Hall, where we have readings, gatherings, and some faculty meetings. It is also the faculty residence hall.

The weather was beautiful again today, and it helped rejuvenate many of us after a high-energy party last night. There is so much to be thankful for at this school. And everyone voices their appreciation. It is not often that a person can make a hundred new friends in just ten days.

Even though there are still a couple of workshops and several lectures and readings the next two days, there is a sense of decompression, that the hardest work is behind us and that we are all close to the end of our brief summer together. The goal now is to maintain the energy, excitement, and magic when we all return home to our jobs and families and prepare for the assignments we have to submit over the next several months.
