Susan Ito trying to do it all: reading writing mothering spousing daughtering working living

Tuesday, June 13, 2006


I was worried that being at Santa Sabina, "leading" a group of writers, would feel too much like work, that it would somehow taint this lovely place that has been such a refuge for me. But it turned out to be one of the best times I have ever spent there. Being there with other writers only made it more inspiring, more productive and more nurturing, not the other way around. It didn't feel like work at all; it felt like... the best vacation ever.

One of the participants described it as "Disneyland for writers." Not that it's nonstop entertainment, but there are a hundred different experiences to choose from. Read in the library? Browse the books in the parlor? Write in your room? Make a paper crane or do some watercoloring in the art room? Nap in the Yurt? Be a hermit in the Hermitage? Light a candle in the chapel? There are endless opportunities for reflection, contemplation, quiet inspiration.

The weekend turned out to be such a success that I immediately booked the next possible openings for a group of writers: November 17-19th, and January 12-14th, 2007. Watch this space if you would like to join us.
