Final Readings

Wow... Three cheers to the process. What an absolute treat to listen to Friday's readings. We heard personal stories about gardening and family, laundry and marriage, what we leave to others, 
and sailing/cruising x 3. What better way to spend a Friday morning in July than with 
thoughtful writer-friends...

Chocolate, Bread, Coffee, Root Beer, and Writing

During our 4th day, the penultimate, Pete took us on an uproarious hiking adventure with Bill Bryson while Ricky treated us to homegrown goodies and a book talk on Jesus, Bread, and Chocolate. Throughout the week we've discussed various revision techniques, and on Thursday morning, I passed out a sheet with seven of my favorites.
