Beginning with the ride home last Saturday I've been trying to put into words the description and impact of spending one week at the Crow Timber Barn with Leslie Morgan's and Claire Benn's Working with Intent has had on me and I can't find the words. To discuss it in terms of techniques learned seems to trivialize the whole of it; to talk about it in terms of their enthusiasm and energy my words don't measure up; to discuss it in terms of how my mind and vision were stretched and latched on seems to elevate it to a spiritual experience. Taking the workshop was like somehow being a part of their formula for kinetic energy. So with that said I'll just share photos taken because at this point its a good beginning. Over the course of time and my work, the experience will grow and hopefully become one I can give justice towards when speaking/writing about it.

With much respect I will state that Claire and Leslie are truly among the few hardest working women I have ever encountered in any arena. To read the perspective of other bloggers who attended check out Juanita and Debbie.
But no one's energy during that week would have sustained without the extraordinary healthy, nutritious, and delicious meals prepared by the heart and hands of Margaret Wolf!
The next post will be a brief documentation of my day yesterday as a phone surveyor for the Obama campaign.
