Write in the Garden, August 24

I recently received a card from one of the writers who came to the July workshop.  

Dear Beth,” she wrote, “I have been searching for the right words to express my deep appreciation to you for making July 13 such a memorable day.

You have a special gift for creating a safe learning environment and for supporting all of our efforts.  You seem to have this endless well of positive things to say without ever passing judgement.

It was a joy to be there, with you and the others.  Your garden is magical, and you created a magical day for me.”
A great birthday gift, this lovely card – not only for the feelings it expresses, but just that it’s so beautifully written.  
There is room for only two or three more writers in the next workshop, August 24th.
