I just spent the weekend at a writing retreat organized by the Morehead Writing Project. I filled pages in my writing journal, writing for the sheer pleasure and joy of it, and enjoyed meals with friends and stayed up far too late talking about our lives, our careers, and our profession. I learned and I created. I celebrated with others doing the same. It was amazing and just what I needed to refresh, renew, and recharge. And I am not alone, I’ve heard similar feedback from many of the other educators who participated in our retreat whether they stayed for just Saturday or returned on Sunday or pulled the late-night session.
