The Sun Magazine November 2011 cover

I first found The Sun at some friends’ home in Greenville SC while visiting last November. They were busy working on something, and on their coffee table was the November 2011 issue of The Sun. I had never heard of this publication before, so I was curious.

There on page 4 was the first piece I read…an interview with author Michael Meade. The title of this article by John Malkin, the interviewer,  caught my attention “Your Own Damn Life – Michael Meade On The Story We’re Born With” 🙂

I devoured this article and the message within spoke to my heart and soul.  I knew already I just had to have this magazine.  I read a couple other articles while my friends finished what they were doing.

But not long after I returned to my own house in Georgia I found The Sun Magazine website, which itself is great, and I ordered a subscription.

This magazine is for writers and all who love to read good articles, stories, and poetry…AND love a magazine which is ad free!  It is supported by subscribers and donations from those who like what this publication is about and its mission to remain ad free.

Check out this piece by one of its authors, Krista Bremer who attended the writers’ retreat/workshop I recently attended.  http://www.thesunmagazine.org/get_involved/help_support_the_sun/letter

My “Time Away for Personal Retreat”…

I was away from May 30th to June 6th to attend The Sun Magazine Writers’ Retreat (workshop) in Rowe, MA.  It was a great experience and I will write more about it over the next few days.

I worked Thursday and Friday in addition to doing some catch up on my to-do list. Yesterday I spent some time alone at my outdoor office/reading room (Starbucks next to Barnes & Noble).  I got back into the book “When the Heart Waits” by Sue Monk Kidd.  It was a nice break.

On the way back to the house I sensed a shift in my internal transitions and maybe a quieter me.  My mind went into a clear reality that yes I have a few friends here, but the huge hole for me…I have never felt at home in this place.  I do like and care for my friends here.  They are good people.  And the people I work with at my part-time job are wonderful.

Still, I wonder what’s next as I walk this path.

I notice God’s hand in my life in the changes taking place within me, and in various areas of my life.  I am calmer as I take each step along the path, and excited anticipating His next surprise for me. I am grateful for all His many blessings.

I look forward to recalling and sharing my nine day adventure with you.
